WATCH Mom hears dead son inside 4-year-old girl

Mom donated son's heart, hears it beating again for first time in donor's chest

Heart Donation 3


The mother of a boy who died under suspicious circumstances was able to hear his heart beat again — inside the body of a 4-year-old girl. Heather Clark, who donated her son’s organs after his death in 2013, visited the Phoenix family of donor recipient Jordan Drake on Friday for an emotional encounter,  KSAZ reports.

Clark shared hugs and tears with Jordan and her mother, Esther Gonzalez, before placing a stethoscope to Jordan’s heart and hearing her son’s heart beat again. “It’s hard to describe … that she would be so selfless to be able to think of another family while she’s going through her grief, ” says Gonzalez, whose daughter spent years inPhoenix Children’s Hospital with a congenital heart defect. “We’re family now, we’re friends now, our families are families, we’ve brought our families together.”
