Heart transported 600 km to save life
A 55-year-old patient, surnamed Zhang, who received a lifesaving heart transplant on June 22 is now recovering and will be discharged from hospital in two to four weeks. The surgery was made possible by a doctor transporting the new heart more than 600 kilometers from Shandong province to Nanjing by rail in less than three hours. Zhang had been waiting for a new heart since April.
