Xiao Bao suffered from a dilated cardiomyopathy, with his heart unable to pump blood efficiently. But a donated heart from almost 2,000 kilometers away saved his life.

Ye Jin, 21, from Guilin, South China's Guangxi Zhuang autonomous region, died of a brain tumor on Thursday and donated his heart to Xiao Bao. The operation turned out to be a great success and Xiao Bao woke up on May 3.

"Life is the most important. I'll join the action at any cost," Cao Wei said. Cao is a helicopter pilot in Beijing for transporting the donated heart from the Beijing Capital International Airport to the Anzhen Hospital where the life of Xiao Bao is maintained by an extracorporeal membrane oxygenator.
