Teen who died in car accident saves another man’s life with his heart

(KFDX) A tragedy on a Texas freeway two years ago ended one life, but and saved another.

The accident happened on January 3, 2014. 17-year-old Shon Blair did not survive. A life-changing transplant followed that tragic accident.

Bobby and Vicki Blair find healing knowing their son was able to save a man’s life.

Recently, for the first time in two years, the Blairs were able to hear the beating of their son’s heart. On what would have been their son’s 20th birthday, the Blairs met Mike Wendt, the man whose life was saved by Shon.

“It’s real now,” Bobby Blair said. “To know that this man got my son’s heart and he’s living because of it. We are so blessed that he got it and I know that my son would honor you for it.”
