|A 37-year-old fireman from Czech Republic became the first man to live without a pulse for six months after having his heart removed and replaced by mechanical pumps on April 3. |
Jakub Halik has said that he is able to live “like a healthy man.”
The fireman became only the second man to undergo the procedure - the first man who underwent the procedure died a month after surgery in Texas last year.
The father-of-one still lives in the hospital and is confined to his wheelchair for much of the day but said that he is lucky to be alive.
Halik is hoping to receive a donor heart and eventually return to the force.
