A little girl by the name of Chanel Murrish was born with a serious malformation of the heart.Doctors found it while the child was still in the womb and suggested the parents to have an abortion, but they refused.
It may seem incredible but, just a few minutes after birth, Chanel underwent open heart surgery! Almost immediately surgeons operated on the 7 lb tot, placing a stent in her heart. This kept her alive long enough to have the first operation for a condition called hypo plastic left heart syndrome, which meant only one half of her heart was beating.
Chanel became the youngest baby in the UK who underwent such surgery.
