Some people are outraged that the heralded man who recently first ever pig heart transplant would be given such a unique opportunity at life. When other people who aren’t criminals so desperately need the transplant surgery.

But his condition began to deteriorate; his doctors in Baltimore said, and the 57-year-old died on 8 March. The heart may have failed because a drug that is supposed to prevent rejection and infection might have damaged the muscle, the school said.

“He proved to be a brave and noble patient who fought all the way to the end,” surgeon Bartley Griffith, who performed the transplant, said in a statement released by the hospital.

But Mr Bennett’s son, David Jr, said he hoped his father’s transplant would “be the beginning of hope and not the end”, according to news agency AP.
