Massachusetts boy, 5, who received new heart, dies
BOSTON (AP) A 5-year-old boy whose reaction to learning he'd be receiving a new heart captivated people on social media has died in Massachusetts.
The family of Ari Schultz said on Facebook that the boy, a Red Sox fan, died Friday evening while listening to the Boston baseball team.
The post didn't reveal the cause of death.
Schultz was born with a heart syndrome that was discovered when his mother was pregnant with him. He had about 20 surgeries and waited more than 200 days to receive a heart transplant at Boston Children's Hospital in March.
Schultz's parents had posted a YouTube video of them telling him he is getting a new heart. The video has received more than 450,000 views.
His father says Ari arrived home from the hospital in mid-June.
