THIS is the emotional moment a 29-year-old deaf woman wept as she heard her own voice for the first time. American Sarah Churman was fitted with a state-of-the-art hearing implant nine weeks ago, having spent her whole life in virtual silence. Her husband decided to film her as nurses turned on the implant and Mrs Churman finally heard the world at full volume. She posted the video on YouTube and wrote underneath: 'I was born deaf and 8 weeks ago I received a hearing implant. 'This is the video of them turning it on and me hearing myself for the first time :)' The moving video has now been seen by more than a million people. DM
