A senior who was seriously injured in a Langley care home fire received a special gift from Fraser Valley Beltone this week. Art Pailey lost one of his hearing aids in the April fire at the Lions Seniors Complex. The April 12 blaze started inside a third floor suite. Art had taken out his hearing aides and didn’t hear the alarms. He says he woke up choking, and is lucky to be alive.

The lost hearing aid was replaced for free. Check out the video we shot on that special day:
