Organ donors save lives every day, but this story from Colorado is different…

A hearse was recently transporting a body so the person’s organs could be donated, when the driver lost control in the snow and went off the road.

He crashed through a barricade and almost drove off a CLIFF.  But the hearse ended up teetering on the edge of it, and he survived.  Officials say the weight of the body in back is what kept the hearse from falling.

Here’s a photo.
