A person fitted with a pig’s heart dies within two months

David Bennett, who fitted a pig’s heart during a heart transplant operation in the United States, has died.

David Bennett, 57, of Maryland, was admitted to Maryland Medical University Hospital with an irregular heartbeat.

Dr. Griffith fitted the pig’s heart to Bennett, who was fighting for his life with artificial respiration.

It was seen as the greatest achievement in the medical world. In this condition, David Bennett died two months after the pig’s heart was fitted.

Doctors did not say the cause of his death. It was only reported that his physical condition had deteriorated over the past few days.
