His heart went to a 60-year-old man who had had a temporary artificial heart in his chest for three-and-a-half years; his lungs went to a 67-year-old man; a kidney was transplanted in a 71-year-old man and another in a 43-year-old woman; his liver went to a 55-year-old woman. His corneas were transplanted into two different teenagers.
