China Daily (Hong Kong) - - CHINA -

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.
