Man is born with his heart in his abdomen

Huang Rongming has undergone surgery to address a very rare case of congenital heart displacement.

The unusual condition saw Huang born with his heart located in front of his stomach, protected from bumps and injuries by nothing but a thin layer of skin. With his heart practically bulging from his abdomen he had to grow up unable to participate in sports or other activities for fear of damaging it. Now thanks to donations following a public appeal, Huang has been able to undergo the surgery he needed to put his heart back in the right place.

"Itís a dream come true," he said. "Iím going to lead a normal life like everyone else." Doctors who examined Huang before his operation were amazed that he'd actually survived this long with a condition where even the slightest bump to his exposed heart could have killed him.

"Huang Rongming was born with congenital heart displacement."

Something strange in this story... the article says he's a factory worker, but it also says he's spent the majority of his life laying down because when he stands up, he can't breathe and turns blue. What factory job allows you to work laying down? Weird.

They say the quickest way to a man's heart is through his stomach. This is a bit too literal, china

My husband recently had a triple heart by-pass plus one. I know what an ordeal it was for my husband. My heart and prayers go out to him and his family.

While it is sad that he waited so precariously into adulthood, it is indeed gratifying to read there are wonderfully generous people in the world willing to help others. Altruism still reigns.
