Little boy teams up with 911 dispatcher to save his mother’s life
Watch a Little Boy Hear His Mother's Voice for the First Time
Ryan Aprea was born a micro preemie and spent the first seven months of his life in the hospital. When he was about to come home, his parents learned that he was "profoundly deaf." He was, however, a candidate for a hearing aid: a cochlear implant. When he turned two, he was finally able to try the device.
His mother, Jennifer, was apprehensive at first. "We went into the appointment not knowing if he would respond at all. Throughout this process, they had informed us that while sound would enter his brain, every child has a different response. We weren't sure if his brain would process the sound, but we wanted to give him a chance to hear us and communicate because he is also visually impaired," she told Today.
The device worked. Watch the joyful moment Ryan hears the sound of his mother's voice for the first time and subsequently bursts into giggles.
