To use his heart, it had to be removed while he was still alive, with the recipient prepped & open to receive it in the same O.R. i hope China uses anesthesia for this process, in addition to a paralyzing drug to prevent thrashing. If they did not the boy felt intense pain as his heart was being cut out. The U.K. uses anesthesia to remove a donor's heart; the U.S. DOES NOT.
That is absolutely the stupidest thing I've heard this year.
It's absolutely untrue, false, and malicious. Hearts are NEVER removed from living donors, the donor is dead.
