4-Year-Old With Hearing Implant Hears Mavs' Drummers

A North Texas family shared a special moment from Tuesday night's Dallas Mavericks game at the American Airlines Center.

Four-year-old Jace Aguilar lost his hearing as a toddler, but he has a brand-new cochlear implant that has restored much of his hearing.

His mother, Brenda Aguilar, says the implant is working great.

She shared a video with NBC 5 showing Jace hearing the Mavs' drum line perform for the very first time.
