The boy with the heart of a lion |12

On this episode of the Global News podcast Crime Beat, crime reporter Nancy Hixt shares a story of one young man’s grit and determination despite a massive loss.  On Jan. 25, 2012, police were called to a residential community in downtown Calgary. They found a man lying outside of a home.  Gatleak Thor Metkurjock, 20, was breathing but unconscious. His face was swollen, he had blood by his nose and mouth, and he had hypothermia. Metkurjock was rushed to hospital by ambulance but died the next day. An autopsy showed he died from blunt force trauma. Meanwhile, across town, the events of that night would change the life of another young man forever. Learn the shocking tragedies and obstacles that led up to this fateful night — and how those events have shaped the boy with the heart of a lion.
