Returning to the live airwaves after a two week holiday hiatus, on Monday evening Piers Morgan welcomed the return of Omari Sealey, in the process revisiting a story he first delved into several weeks ago.
Following what was initially thought to be a routine tonsillectomy, Jahi McMath has been classified as brain-dead. On Sunday, the 13-year-old was transferred from the California hospital which sought to remove her from a ventilator, the latest turn in a series of events that her uncle classifies as nothing short of miraculous. Joining Morgan for a live, face to face interview, Sealey spoke emotionally about his niece:
"Jahi is a very sweet girl. She was very shy, and she smiled all the time. I can still see her smile. I'm just still praying that one day I'll be able to see her smile again," said Sealey, while holding back mounting tears. "She is everybody's favorite. She just had one of those personalities that when you meet her, you just kind of gravitated towards her."
As the segment was drawing to a close, the family's lawyer, Chris Dolan, took a moment to show his appreciation for the "Piers Morgan Live" host:
"We want to thank you, because it was really your show that helped connect us with the people who are now helping her. News is always, often put down. In this case, you helped make this possible."
Morgan humbly appreciated the gesture:
"I'm glad that we've been helpful. I hope we can continue to be helpful."
