Erika Hernandez, 28, gives a thumbs up as she leaves the La Raza General hospital in Mexico city, January 24, 2012, after hospital authorities confirmed that her heart transplant and recovery had been successful. The donor's heart that Erika was originally due for a transplant on January 11 was accidentally dropped during its transport to the hospital. Specialists had determined, after careful examination, that the heart was not bruised or broken and proceeded with the transplant. REUTERS/Edgard Garrido (MEXICO - Tags: HEALTH SOCIETY)
