Transplant sisters sky dive to honour organ donor

A heart transplant survivor has taken a spectacular leap of faith, jumping out of an airplane at 14,000ft to celebrate the second anniversary of her heart transplant. What made it even more special was that she took the plunge with her ‘transplant sister’. The pair received their life saving gifts from the same organ donor and they've been best friends ever since.
