Default The Amazing Story of Francisco 'Paco' Rodriguez

I imagine most of you are familiar with this story, but amongst all the *******/***** BS that goes on in here, I'm sure many of you would like to either watch this for the first time, or hear it again. This is the story of Paco Rodriguez who collpased in the ring infront of his father and brother, then being declared braindead a few days later. And the moving story of how the donation of his heart, liver and lungs to terminally-ill patients allowed them to live on when he could not.

I caught the FNF piece on Paco not too long ago as well. It was a very moving and emotional story where a (ring) tragedy transformed into goodness and triumph. I actually was weeping by the end of it....
