Dying man weds in ICU, then heart arrives to save him

47-yr-old granted last wish at hospital, docs perform transplant

(ANSA) - ROME, JUL 5 - A man dying after a heart attack got marries in an Italian intensive care unit but a heart arrived to save him while the ceremony was taking place.
    The 47-year-old man's last wish was to get married and Turin's Molinette Hospital granted his wish, with a priest performing the ceremony while he was on life support in the ICU, and his bride carrying a bouquet made from blood test tube caps.
    But at the last minute the doctors heard that there was a possibility of a heart transplant, which they duly performed later that night. (ANSA).
