Dad shares incredible moment Aussie girl hears for the first time

The incredible moment a little West Australian girl hears for the first time with the help of a hearing aid has been shared, prompting an outpouring of heartwarming comments from viewers.

Tristan Storer, of Mollerin in the state’s Wheatbelt, shared video of his daughter, Macy, getting fitted for her hearing aid.

His wife, Laura Hutton-Storer, speaks to Macy as she sits on his lap.

“Hello beautiful girl,” she says.

“Can you hear us?”

Macy touches her ears, trying to make sense of what she’s hearing.

She becomes emotional at the sound of mum and dad speaking to her.

“It’s okay, sweetie,” her mum says.

“Can you hear me?”

She then tickles Macy’s tummy.

“Oh, she’s frightened,” Ms Hutton-Storer says.

The Hearing Australia staff put the Wiggles’ song Hot Potato on.

Macy stops, sits and listens, pondering the music she’s hearing for the first time.

Mr Storer’s video has more than 2.6 million views with people moved by Macy’s experience.

“What a beautiful little girl you have! I wish you her all the luck in the world and hope she has a truly beautiful life ahead,” one woman tweeted.

Another woman called it “heartwarming”.

“I’m so happy for your daughter, she’s such a precious little soul,” she tweeted.

Anthony Field, also known as the “Blue Wiggle”, tweeted it was “an honour” the first song Macy heard was Hot Potato.
