Becky Turney was surprised at the altar by Jacob Kilbey — the man whose life had been saved by receiving her late son Triston’s heart when he died aged just 19. Becky Turney lost her son Triston in 2015, when he was just 19 years old. Because he was an organ donor, the family was comforted that Triston’s organs would go on to save the lives of five other people.
Two years later, the station reports that Becky’s fiancé, Kelly, decided to surprise Becky with a visit from the man who received Triston’s heart — 21-year-old Jacob Kilby.
In the middle of their wedding ceremony, Kelly paused the ceremony to introduce Jacob as his final groomsman.
Photographs of the moment show Becky in surprise and in tears as she hugged Jacob and listened to his heartbeat.
Becky, 40, was overcome with emotion as she listened to Triston’s heart through a stethoscope just after she had taken her vows.
The emotional scene was organised by Becky’s new hubby Kelly — who described how Triston’s organ had been used to save five lives following his death two years ago.
Overcome with emotion, Alaskan Becky told the Mirror: «It was the most amazing moment of my life.
«I threw my arms around him and told him that it was the greatest gift in the world.»
