Phillip Hancock was only 27 years-old when he passed away two months ago – but the compassionate young man’s death made history in Chongqing, China.
Hancock had been working as an English teacher there for four years until he fell ill from complications with type 1 diabetes.
When he was rushed to the hospital in an ambulance, his heart had temporarily stopped beating. By the time his family arrived, he had fallen into a coma and died.
While this may seem like a fairly common tragedy, there was something remarkable about the Australian man’s passing because he was an organ donor.
