MORROW, OH (FOX19) - A local fire chief and his family were featured in an episode of FOX's 'Mobbed' on Wednesday.

The show is hosted by Howie Mandel, and combines a hidden camera with a flash mob, resulting in a big surprise for someone featured on the show.

Andy Mitten is the Harlan Twp. Fire Chief.

His daughter Dee Dee was killed in a car accident in 1991 and helped others as an organ and tissue donor. In the episode, the Mitten family has a surprise meeting with one of the recipients of her organs in the next episode, titled 'You Saved My Life'.

Dee Dee's sister, Melissa, started working for LifeCenter Organ Donor Network, following her death. She is the Director of Organ Operations, and her sister's donation is what inspired her to start a career in organ donation.

The show celebrates Melissa's father, someone who risks his life every day as a firefighter, as well as honors the memory of Dee Dee.

A viewing party was held on Wednesday night in the Little Miami High School auditorium, with over 100 friends and family in attendance.
