A heartwarming video shows the moment a husband recovers a recording of his late wife after devastatingly losing the voice message months earlier.

Stan Beaton says work by a phone company accidentally deleted the voicemail that he'd kept for ten years. Listening to his wife's voice brought him happiness during the low moments after her death, Beaton tells BBC.

“In December I learned that it had disappeared. I just could not tell people how it affected me at that time. It really did devastate me.” Said Beaton.

Virgin Media heard the story and put 11 engineers on the case. Searching for the message was like finding a needle in a haystack but, against all odds, the team found it, a Virgin rep told BBC.

Beaton's reaction to the recovered voicemail was caught camera and has received more than 300,000 views in only two days.

“It's just a wonderful, wonderful sound that I thought was lost forever,” a tearful Beaton says.

The message will no longer be in jeopardy as Virgin Media plans to send Beaton the recording on a CD, BuzzFeed reports.
