Mormon church-goers recall how Romney helped dying teen


Members of Mitt Romney's Mormon church have spoken at the Republican National Convention in Tampa, Florida, and described how the presidential nominee has served his church community.

Among those who spoke were Ted and Pat Oparowski, who told the crowd about how Mr Romney befriended their son, David, who was terminally ill with Hodgkins disease.

Mr and Mrs Oparowski brought tears to the eyes of those gathered as they remembered how Mr Romney helped David write a will and also spoke at the boy's funeral.
