News10NBC has a follow-up to the story of a man who was denied access to his wife's dying messages to him on Facebook.

Charles Wachal, of Ontario, has been able to gain access to one of the videos his late wife left him, along with photos of the couple’s baby daughter, by resetting his wife’s iCloud account on her phone.

His wife passed away on Valentine’s Day from a degenerative disease. She left those messages for him and their daughter privately on her Facebook page.


So far, Facebook has not allowed him access to his wife's account, but Wachal is hoping the policy can be changed.
