U.S. surgeons have successfully transplanted a pig’s heart into a human: “Is it death or is this transplant surgery?”

The surgery was performed on Friday and showed for the first time that an animal heart can continue to function within a human without immediate rejection, the company said in a statement.

David Bennett, 57, who received Porsche Heart, was declared ineligible for human transplant surgery. The new organ is now being closely monitored by doctors to make sure it is functioning properly.
