  1. 0;contentbody

    (cbs/ap) a heart made headlines earlier this month when it was
    dropped on the ground while being transported
    to the hospital for a
    transplant. where's the heart now? beating healthily in the body of a
    28-year-old hair stylist.

    dr. jaime saldivar says erika hernandez doesn't yet know that her new heart
    survived a stumble. when a medic tripped after exiting the helicopter, the
    plastic-wrapped heart tumbled out of a water cooler and onto the street.
