Posted on May 28, 2013

In the second deaf related story arising from the devastating Oklahoma Tornado, the Mail Online reports that an adopted Chinese deaf orphan will now have a cochlear implant operation after the implant was found in the rubble of a destroyed hospital. Nurses had to pick through the rubble to find the equipment, worth $30,000. Read the full story here.
