A local couple is engaged.

This video was sent to us and it shows a man hearing his partner for the first time in 6 months. The man lost his hearing during a battle with meningitis, but after receiving his cochlear implant he was able to hear his partner's voice.

Well, not only did this man get to hear his partner's voice for the first time in a very long time, he also heard the words, "Will you marry me?"

Yes, the man's partner took advantage of this emotional get together and asked for his hand in marriage.

To hear this man say, "I can hear you" is something special. We wish of them the best in the days moving forward.
