Parents feel son's heart beat again

Bermuda Times | Awain Johnston-Barnes
More than four years ago Dakarai Tucker's family and friends said their final goodbyes to the popular teenager, who died as a result of a brain aneurysm.

But on Saturday, Dakarai's parents felt their son's heart beating again.

Part reunion and part first meeting, the Tucker family met New Jersey student Ryan Miller, whose life was saved after he received Dakarai's heart in a transplant.

Surrounded by Dakarai's friends and family during a visit to Warwick Academy, where Dakarai was a student, Mr Miller said: “I have never felt better than I have today. I honestly have never felt better.”
