Deaf 40-year-old woman hears sound for first time - video
Amateur footage shows the moment Joanne Milne, who has been deaf since birth and is now 40 years old, hears for the first time.
Joanne has a rare medical condition called Usher syndrome, and as a result also began to lose her vision in her 20s. She was fitted with cochlear implants at a hospital in Birmingham in February, and is visibly overcome with emotion when hearing a nurse read the days of the week. Watch

Truly amazing.
