Deaf woman hears for first time, boyfriend proposes

The day was full of surprises for one woman who recently had her hearing restored.

Doctors from the University of Mississippi Medical Center shared a touching video of a patient who had her hearing restored thanks to a cochlear implant.

Andrea Diaz was overcome with emotion, but its what happened next that appeared to truly surprised her. Once the volume was adjusted on her implant, her boyfriend got down on one knee and purposed to her.

"Because I love you so much and you're my best friend baby, I wanted to make the first thing you hear was me asking you to marry me," he said.

She said "yes."

Cochlear implants are electronic devices that replace the function of a damaged inner ear.
