TULSA, Okla. (AP) - A Tulsa man is being honored after donating 40 gallons of blood during the past 59 years.
Eight-five-year-old Darwin Eaton began donating blood to the American Red Cross in 1949 and when he arrived yesterday he was met with a party in his honor.
Eaton has now donated 320 times and Red Cross spokesman Jan Hale says he's second-highest donor of whole blood and is just three pints short of the world record.
Eaton says there's nothing hard about it and he's usually back home in an hour.
