Dad Hears Late Son's Heartbeat Again Inside a Teddy Bear

One Virginia dad received the gift of a lifetime, that instantly brought him to tears.

When 16-year-old Dakota Reid passed away in a car accident last year, his father, John, made the decision to donate his organs. This incredible gesture gave others a second chance at life. Six of Dakota's organs were donated, meaning six lives were changed forever. The man who got Dakota's heart sent John a special gift. Watch as John opens the box containing a bear with a recording of Dakota's heart beating inside the new recipient.

He says hearing from the man has given him and his family a great sense of peace as they continue to grieve
