Teen Receives Heart After Initially Being Denied

Anthony Stokes

Anthony Stokes, the 15-year-old boy whose family said he was initially denied a place on the heart transplant waiting list because of "noncompliance," has received a new heart.

Anthony underwent the five-hour heart transplant surgery at 6:15 p.m. Tuesday, family spokesman Mark Bell told ABC News. He is now resting and in recovery.

"I would like to thank everyone involved, and that we will update everyone throughout the day," Melencia Hamilton, Anthony's mother, said through Bell.
