Video: Woman hears voice for the first time

It’s not “newsy,” but then neither was the video of the little Brazilian girl and everyone loved that. What this is, in fact, is a legit viral sensation and assuredly the most affecting thing you’ll see today. Her name is Sloan Churman; she’s 29 and has been deaf since the day she was born — until very, very recently. Eight weeks ago she had surgery to have the Esteem hearing aid implanted in her ear. This is the moment when they turned it on. Magic.
