    Process failures in the collection, screening and transplantation of donated organs in the U.S. have been responsible for at least 70 deaths and the development of 249 avoidable disease, the Senate Finance Committee revealed in a report Wednesday. The full report, which was obtained by the Washington Post, cites failures to identify diseases lying within organs that would cause issue for the next host, failures to properly match blood types and perfectly good-to-use organs being lost or discarded after mismanagement in the transport chain. These cases include a man in South Carolina who received transplanted lungs that were incompatible with his body - killing him the next day. On heart transplant patient in Wisconsin was told they would die in three years after it was discovered the heart they just received came from a person with brain cancer. Fault for these issues is distributed across multiple groups. First, the individual non-profits that control the procurement and transplantation or organs in each region, called organ procurement organizations (OPOs). The United Network for Organ Sharing (UNOS) is responsible for overseeing those groups as...
    A man from Maryland, David Bennett, received a heart transplant from a genetically altered pig but suffered numerous complications before dying. Source: Inside Edition/Youtube Although there were no reported signs of the patient rejecting the genetically modified heart, traces of a virus that is known to infect pigs called porcine cytomegalovirus was found in the man. The 57-year-old had reportedly been extremely ill before the surgery and survived two months after the transplant. The New York Times reported that according to the surgeon, it’s the first of its kind.

Experts believe that modified animal organs can introduce new and harmful pathogens into the human population. Although the patient had no signs of an infection from the virus, it was found in his DNA, which they assume could have led to the decline in his health after the transplant.

    MARYLAND -- Researchers trying to learn what killed the first person to receive a heart transplant from a pig have discovered the organ harbored an animal virus but cannot yet say if it played any role in the man's death.A Maryland man, 57-year-old David Bennett Sr., died in March, two months after the groundbreaking experimental transplant. University of Maryland doctors said Thursday they found an unwelcome surprise - viral DNA inside the pig heart. They did not find signs that this bug, called porcine cytomegalovirus, was causing an active infection.But a major worry about animal-to-human transplants is the risk that it could introduce new kinds of infections to people.Because some viruses are "latent," meaning they lurk without causing disease, "it could be a hitchhiker," Dr. Bartley Griffith, the surgeon who performed Bennett's transplant, told The Associated Press.Still, development is under way of more sophisticated tests to "make sure that we don't miss these kinds of viruses," added Dr. Muhammad Mohiuddin, scientific director of the university's xenotransplant program.The animal virus was first reported by MIT Technology Review, citing a scientific presentation...

    Doctors have documented what they believe to be the first known case of a U.S. patient developing blood clots after receiving the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine. In a case report, researchers document a 65-year-old man who visited Allegheny Health Network in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, 10 days after his second and final dose. He was diagnosed with blood clots in his legs, which they determined to a rare even caused by the immunization - and he ultimately passed away. It was previously believed that the rare but life-threatening condition only occurred in people who received Johnson & Johnson or AstraZeneca vaccines, both of which combine genetic material from the coronavirus with the genes of the adenovirus - which causes the common cold - to induce an immune response. The team says its findings show the side effect can also occur after someone gets a vaccine that uses messenger RNA (mRNA) but that, because blood clots after vaccinations are uncommon, it should not dissuade people from getting the COVID-19 jab.  A 65-year-old man was admitted to Allegheny Health Network in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, 10...

    DURHAM, N.C. (AP) — A man who served nearly 44 years in prison for a crime he says he didn’t commit has received compensation from the state of North Carolina. Ronnie Long told The Charlotte Observer that it’s not nearly enough. Long received $750,000. It is by law the state’s top compensation for victims of wrongful incarceration. Long’s attorney, Duke University law professor Jamie Lau, said the amount is inadequate for people who were imprisoned for decades. Long was convicted of raping the widow of a Cannon Mills executive in 1976 by an all-white jury in Concord. Potentially exculpatory evidence was either intentionally withheld from his defense team or disappeared. And there was a tampered pool of potential jurors. A federal court overturned Long’s conviction. He was released from prison in September. And he was pardoned by Gov. Roy Cooper. “Fair? What’s fair?” Long told newspaper. “Ask yourself that question when these people took away your 20s, your 30s, your 40s, your 50s and they started in on your 60s.” Long said his mother and father both...

    By ZEN SOO, Associated Press HONG KONG (AP) — Hong Kong authorities on Tuesday reported the death of a chronically ill man, two days after he received a COVID-19 vaccine and said that it is too early to conclude whether the vaccine was related to his death. The man's death happened less than a week after Hong Kong began its vaccination program for priority and at-risk groups in the city. The 63-year-old man was inoculated with the COVID-19 vaccine on Feb. 26 at a government-designated vaccination site and developed shortness of breath two days later on Feb. 28. The man then admitted himself to a hospital, but died the same day, according to a statement from health authorities late Tuesday night. While the statement did not specify which vaccine the man was inoculated with, the vaccination program in Hong Kong currently only uses shots from Chinese biopharmaceutical company Sinovac. Hong Kong health authorities said that the man's death is under investigation. “At the moment, the causal relationship with the vaccination could not be ascertained,” the statement said.

    PIERRE, S.D. (AP) — President Donald Trump renewed his grievance over the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election by pardoning Paul Erickson, a former conservative operative once romantically linked to Russian agent Maria Butina. Erickson received the pardon even though he had pleaded guilty to fraudulent investment schemes that had nothing to do with Russia or the agent. It was part of a flurry of clemency action by Trump just before his term ended, with the White House characterizing his conviction as “based off the Russian collusion hoax” and saying his pardon “helps right the wrongs of what has been revealed to be perhaps the greatest witch hunt in American History.” But Erickson’s schemes started long before he met Butina, who was deported in 2019 after serving time for failing to register as a foreign agent. Erickson pleaded guilty to wire fraud and money laundering after being charged with operating fraudulent investment schemes over a 20-year period from 1996 to August 2018. The schemes bilked $5.3 million from 78 people and originated long before Erickson met Butina, according...
    TEXAS (CBSDFW.COM) – He served more than a decade of a life sentence for a third-strike marijuana charge, now Ferrell D. Scott could leave prison thanks to a last-minute commutation from outgoing President Donald Trump. The father of three from Dallas was charged with transporting shipments of marijuana in 2007. One of his co-defendants received 20 years in prison and the rest of the men involved were sentenced to less than 7 years. But Scott received a mandatory life sentence. A statement form the White House Press Secretary states: This commutation is supported by former Acting United States Attorney Sam Sheldon, who prosecuted his case and wrote that he “… strongly does not believe that [Mr. Scott] deserves a mandatory life sentence.” Ms. Alice Johnson, the CAN-DO Foundation, and numerous others also support clemency for Mr. Scott. Mr. Scott has served nearly 9 years of a life imprisonment sentence for possession with intent to distribute marijuana. Under today’s sentencing guidelines, it is likely that Mr. Scott would not have received such a harsh sentence. President Obama denied the now 58-year-old’s...
    SAN ANTONIO – Jose Sosa, 39, is the first person in South Texas to receive a double-lung transplant after complications caused by COVID-19. He’s now warning people about the dangers of the virus and asking people to take the pandemic seriously. Sosa had trouble breathing and checked into a hospital on July 4 in Corpus Christi after being diagnosed with COVID-19. He had no underlying health issues and did not know how to contracted COVID-19. Sosa was transferred to a hospital in San Antonio as his condition worsened. A team at the University Health Transplant Center located at University Hospital evaluated him for a lung transplant. “It became clear over time (Sosa) was not going to recover from this,” said Dr. Edward Sako, a surgical doctor for the lung transplant program and faculty member at UT Health San Antonio. “That’s how we came to the conclusion he would be a candidate for lung transplant.” Sako performed the double-lung transplant surgery on Oct. 25. Sosa was able to go home on Dec. 2, nearly five months after being admitted to the...

    SACRAMENTO (CBS13) — A man convicted of filing a false FEMA claim for benefits after the 2018 Camp Fire has been sentenced to prison time. Daniel Connelly, a 56-year-old Forest Ranch resident, had pleaded guilty back in July. Prosecutors had charged him with filing a false application for FEMA benefits, with Connelly claiming that he had a home in the town of Paradise damaged by the Camp Fire. According to court documents, Connelly knew the claim was false due to him vacating the residence months before the fire due to his bank initiating eviction proceedings. The home was vacant and listed for sale at the time of the destructive wildfire that killed dozens. Connelly received $2,663 from FEMA to help with rent and replace personal property. On Thursday, the district attorney’s office announced that Connelly had received an 8 month and 11 day prison sentence. He will also have to pay back that $2,663 he received.

    A Manhattan fraudster scored a nearly $7 million refund from the IRS — and lived the high life for two weeks — before the feds caught onto him, authorities say. Federal prosecutors allege that Jameen Walker, 46, hatched his illicit get-rich-quick scheme by falsely claiming that a corporation he controlled paid him $16 million in income in 2018 and withheld $12.2 million. The IRS ended up issuing Walker a refund check for $6,932,954.80, which he deposited into his bank account Aug. 26, 2019, authorities said. Then for the next two weeks, Walker blew $85,000 in cash before the account was frozen Sept. 10, the federal complaint states. In 2016, Walker had tried the same scheme, claiming on tax documents that the Stallings Empire Corporation, of which he was the only employee, had paid him $19.7 million in 2015 and withheld $14.6 million, authorities said. The IRS didn’t pay out the $6.8 million refund he allegedly sought at that time. But each year after that, he kept filing the bogus returns until he struck gold with his latest attempt and...
    LAFAYETTE (KPIX 5) — While there has been an increasingly sharp focus on vote-by-mail ballots in the November election, some voters in Contra Costa County are still sorting through voter rolls tainted by a case of voter registration fraud four years ago. “So, this whole street, there’s only three houses,” explained Lafayette resident Jack Shawn as he he gestured at other homes in his neighborhood. “I know everybody that has ever lived here and none of them are those people.” Shaw has received his 2020 vote-by-mail ballots: a couple that he was expecting, and two more with names he has never seen before. “This is my ballot that I opened up,” said Shaw with his ballot in hand. “This is my daughter’s. And these two people I don’t know.” KPIX took his questions to the Contra County County elections office. As soon as they heard about unexpected ballots, they had an idea of what was going on. “I knew the rest of the story,” said  Contra Costa County Assistant Registrar of Voters Scott Konopasek. “I have heard it many, many...
