Family hears beating heart, months after fatal fire

Matthew Heisler, 21, died in a house fire last March. His heart still beats.

When he was 16, he signed up to be an organ donor. When he died, his heart was given to Tom Meeks of Washington state, who had waited for three years for one.

Now, months later, Heisler’s family got to hear his heart still beating, KARE 11 says.
