A heartbroken mother who lost her son to an accident got a chance to listen to his heart beating inside another man’s chest. Greg Ricks, late son of Anna Ricks met with a fatal accident last year which left him braid dead. The father-of-three was in a terrible condition and the family learned that Greg won’t make it, so Anna decided to donate his heart.
“I said, ‘My Greg had such a big beautiful heart’ I think I want to donate that,” Anna told Inside Edition.
A few months later, Greg’s heart was transplanted into a 48-year-old man’s chest who had suffered from a heart attack. Greg’s heart saved a stranger’s life and the most shocking part was that the man’s name is Greg too. Infact, Greg’s last name is Robbins which means that they both share the same initials too, GR.
When Anna heard that her son’s heart saved someone’s life, that too someone who has the same name, she had to meet him.
“I said, ‘I definitely want to meet you and I hope it can be pretty soon,'” Robbins recalled.
When Anna finally got to meet Robbins, she was ready with a stethoscope to hear her son’s heartbeat. The mother instantly broke down when she heard her son’s heartbeat. Check out the emotional moment in the video below.
