"In world first cases, NHS doctors have completed heart transplants in children with the organs brought back to life using a pioneering machine.

The new technique has saved the lives of six British youngsters aged from 12 to 16, and the transplants have all happened during the coronavirus pandemic.

Donated hearts have historically been from people who are brain dead but their hearts are still beating which limits the scope for how many transplants are possible.

And on average, children have to wait two-and-a-half times longer than adults for hearts to become available."

This is an astonishing thing to hear . We are an amazing species . Flawed yes but still amazing .
