Family Who Lost Son Listens To His Heartbeat In Another Man’s Chest

4 years ago, Jared Heisler’s 21 year-old son Matt died in a house fire while studying at the University of North Dakota.

But now his family has been able to hear his heartbeat again in the chest of retired Vietnam veteran Tom Meeks. This is because Matt had decided to be an organ donor when was only 16 years old.  In addition to Mr. Meeks receiving his heart, there were also an additional 60 people who also benefited from his donated organs after his passing.

Matt’s father said, “He made the decision that if life ever slipped away from him, he would give life to someone else.”

This video below of his sons heartbeat is guaranteed to give you chills. RIP Matt.

Rest in peace.
