A 40-year-old woman named Jo Milne was born with Usher Syndrome. As a result, she's been deaf from birth. Recently, Milne was fitted with bilateral conchlear implants. When they're switched on, she can hear for the first time in her life.

Luckily, a friend was there to film the experience (though, didn't have the foresight to film it horizontally) and we're all the better for it.

Aaaand now we're all crying in the office. Happy Friday, everyone.
