This is a heartwarming moment when a deaf boy spins around in shock and bursts into tears as he hears his dad’s voice for the first time in weeks after getting a replacement hearing aid. When nine-year-old Luiz Gustavo da Silva’s surgical hearing implant stopped working in March this year, he was left facing weeks of uncertainty because his family couldn't afford the repair bill of £1,630. The child's plight touched the hearts of scores of residents in his home town, Bueno Brandão in south east Brazil, so they helped him.

To show their appreciation, the youngster's dad recorded the moment when he refitted the implement to his anxious son's left ear and switched it on. At first, it seems like the device isn’t working. After his dad makes the necessary attachment, the instant Luiz hears his dad’s voice is priceless. It brings tears to our eyes when we see how he jumps with surprised joy and gives the thumbs up. It is a moment that only reminds us how isolated people are when they have problems hearing.

Luiz Gustavo bursts into tears as his father says: 'There is no need to cry' but starts to cry himself while repeatedly affirming: 'You can hear, you can hear!' After hugging the family friend, the delighted boy waves to the camera and between sobs says: 'Thank you everyone.'

The video has eight million views, hundreds of thousands of shares. People are touched by Luiz Gustavo's response which is heartfelt. His reaction reduces everybody to tears as he can’t stop crying with happiness.
