NEW ORLEANS (WAFB) -

A young heart-transplant patient is enjoying his life after receiving a new heart.

Seth Turner, 13, was born with a heart condition that kills a majority of children in the first few months of birth. In 2011, his condition began to decline. His family moved from Clinton to New Orleans so that Seth could receive medical treatment at Ochsner.

Ochsner is the only hospital in the state with a pediatric heart transplant program.
