Man With Down Syndrome Welcomed Back to School Following Heart Transplant

Tyler Krueger, a 24-year-old Michigan student with Down syndrome, returned to school to with a new, and extremely light, heart. The ebullient young man hadn't been able to attend class since he underwent transplant surgery to replace his sick heart. For Krueger, going back to school was the best thing that had happened to him since he started getting sick three years ago. And the students and teachers at Pine Tree Center in Lake Orion, Michigan, were just as ecstatic to see him.
