WILLOUGHBY HILLS, OH (FOX8) - Deaf man makes plea for return of ear implants. A local rugby player had his ear implants stolen this past Saturday, and he says they were only 5 feet away!
It’s a big deal because Allen Lee, 23, is legally deaf in both ears and he needs his implants to work. Allen plays rugby for the Cleveland Eastern Rugby Team and was at a match in North Chagrin Park when someone took his bag that contained the implants.
Hazel Lee, Allen’s mother, called FOX 8 in a desperate attempt to track down his stolen hearing aids. Park rangers said they wish Allen would have reported the crime on Saturday – the day it happened – so they could have started their search right away.
