Wow! Emotional moment deaf 14 years old girl hears her father speak for the first time

With the flick of a switch, this is the emotional moment a deaf 14-year-old girl hears her family speak for the very first time,thanks to ground breaking surgery.
Maggie Gleason was filmed as doctors at UH Case Medical Center in Cleveland turned on an auditory brainstem implant (ABI), placed on the lower part of her brain during a ten-hour surgery. Footage shows the teenager suddenly grinning from ear to ear as her father Frank asks: 'Maggie, can you hear me?' As Maggie nods a 'yes', the room is filled with ecstatic cries. She was one of the first patients to receive an auditory brainstem implant (ABI) at the UH Case Medical Center.
