Girl, 10, Moved to Adult Transplant List

A 10-year-old girl dying of cystic fibrosis has been moved to an adult transplant list after a federal judge in Philadelphia granted the temporary request due to her severe condition. Sarah Murnaghan has been in the Children's Hospital for three months. Rules for organ transplants stipulate children under 12 must wait for pediatric lungs, but her parents say that rarely occurs, and the girl's doctors say they can perform a successful transplant using adult lungs.
