CNN BREAKING NEWS

Mexican Teen to Undergo Second Transplant Surgery

Aired February 20, 2003 - 06:07   ET

THIS IS A RUSH TRANSCRIPT. THIS COPY MAY NOT BE IN ITS FINAL FORM AND MAY BE UPDATED.

CAROL COSTELLO, CNN ANCHOR: We have some breaking news to tell you about right now. A Mexican teenager is now scheduled to undergo another transplant operation, and that will happen at 8:00 Eastern Time this morning.
Officials at Duke University have found a heart and lung for 17- year-old Jesica Santillan. She was mistakenly given organs from a donor with a different blood type, but they've found new organs for her with the right blood type, and they'll perform that operation at 8:00 a.m. Eastern Time, so good luck to her.
