Human Heart Found on Southwest Plane



Source: Southwest Airlines

A human heart found onboard a Dallas-bound Southwest flight caused the plane to return to Seattle.

According to the Seattle Times, the heart was being sent via a courier onboard Flight 3606 from Sacramento to Seattle. Unfortunately, someone forgot to unload the heart once the plane reached its destination.
The heart was being sent to a tissue processor to recover a valve for use in a future transplant, with the Seattle Times reporting the delay did not impair the heart.

After a five-hour delay the plane took off once more for Dallas.
