A father based in the US recently got to hear his late son’s heartbeat again - through the woman whose life was saved by his organ donor.
The father, named Jordan, was left heartbroken after his son was struck by a car while walking home one night. He was in intensive care for 10 days before his life support was turned off.
After his life support was turned off, Jordan’s son's organs were donated to five different people - ultimately saving their lives.
Recently, Jordan got the oppurtunity to meet one of the five people his son saved, and listen to his son’s heartbeat once more, in an emotional reunion.
Speaking to a news outlet about their meeting, Jordan said getting to hear his son’s heartbeat was more than he could ever imagine.
“It’s almost like getting to see Matthew again,” he told the outlet through tears. “I know his heart continues to beat.”
