England: The father was attacked by thugs at the railroad station, left for dead but actually was in coma several days finding out he couldn't hear nor smell wasn't there at the hospital when his son was born, having complications. It was devastating when doctors told him that he shouldn't care for his children while alone at home as it's a safety issue being unable to hear or smell the fire setting off the smoke alarm go nor the cries of his baby, especially at nights, and know when diapers needs to be changed. A local audiologist became aware of his situation and donated the digital hearing aids, and life is back to normal.

I felt like was blasted into the past, surrounded by all those vintage automobiles.
