Doctors in the United States have declared a successful transplantation of a genetically modified pig’s heart into the human body, the first of its kind.

Doctors say David Bennett, who underwent surgery, recovered three days after a seven-hour operation.

The operation was seen as Bennett’s last hope of saving his life, although it is not yet clear what his chances of survival are in the long run.

The day before the operation, Bennett, 57, said, “Either I die or I have this operation.” This is my last resort.
