Zammit, Gribilas Families '60 Minutes' VIDEO: 'Friends for Life'

Many Australians were gripped by the story on last night's '60 Minutes' Australia - with the Zammy family and the Gribilas family.

At the very heart of it - in every sense of the word - was a young man named Doujon Zammit.

The story of both families is connected in ways they didn't think possible.


Says the video description:

When Australian teenager Doujon Zammit was murdered on holidays in Greece in 2008, his mother and father put aside their grief to donate his major organs. That selfless act saved the lives of four people, including Kostas Gribilas who received Doujon’s heart. It was a gift that would set these two families on a life journey like no other. Kostas and his fiancĂ© Poppy since moved to Australia – around the corner from Doujon’s parents, Oliver and Rosemarie. They are now best friends – at their wedding Oliver was Doujon’s best man. And the best friends have been there through more heartbreak – this time together. On 60 Minutes, reporter Liz Hayes tells this remarkable story of love, sacrifice, and loss and the friendship that has held them all together.
