A dying man in Baltimore has become part of medical history, receiving the heart of a genetically-modified animal.

57-year-old David Bennett’s own diseased heart was replaced with that of a pig, whose genes were modified to prevent it being rejected after transplant.

Mr Bennett is said to be doing well three days after surgery.

WARNING: this report contains images of the transplant operation from the start.
