A California hospital has performed a successful heart transplant after the helicopter carrying the donated organ crashed upon landing.
After the firefighters managed to retrieve the organ, a medical worker stumbled and dropped it, before it was picked up again and dashed in.
The accident happened at Keck Hospital at the University of Southern California in Los Angeles on Friday.
Officials say the pilot sustained minor injuries when the plane crashed onto a rooftop airstrip, while the other two people on board were unharmed.
The hospital said that no one was injured on the ground or in the hospital, and patient care was not disrupted.
