Sharing is Caring!

A terminally ill man who received a genetically-modified pig’s heart in a groundbreaking transplant has died two months after the surgery.

Maryland hospital announced that David Bennett, 57, died on Tuesday. No exact cause of death has yet been established, but doctors said his condition had been deteriorating for several days.

Mr Bennett’s son, David Jr, praised the hospital for attempting the surgery to save his father’s life and said his family hoped it would contribute to efforts to address a shortage of transplant organs.
