Sheep is living with artificial heart

Medical researchers in China unveiled a sheep fitted with a new type of artificial heart this week.

It's reportedly a smaller, lighter artificial heart than pervious prototypes. Scientists say the sheep has lived more than 60 days with the artificial heart and is good condition.

The heart was jointly developed by the China Academy of Launch Vehicle Technology and an international cardiovascular hospital in northern China.
