Free Implants

Cochlear Americas says it will replace a cochlear implant free of charge that was stolen from 12-year-old Daniele Marrufo at a recreation center in Denver. The company plans to send two of the devices, valued at $10,000 apiece. The left one was stolen and the right one was broken and needed replacing. Daniele had left his implant inside one of his shoes while swimming atthe Link Recreation Center.
