HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow - It's been one year since a taxi driver was beaten to death by two passengers.

Ty Tang was working late the night of his 41St birthday,  May 1, 2010, when he was killed by two teens he drove from Waikiki to Waipahu.

Tang's tragic murder gave four strangers in three states organ donations they needed to survive.
