A ‘good news’ video of the week came from a hospital in Baltimore where 16-year-old Amari Hall celebrated after a successful heart transplant.

Hall’s aunt captured the moment he danced with joy in his hospital bed at the University of Maryland Medical Center on May 18.

Medical staff also joined in the impromptu celebration after seeing Hall’s jubilant reaction.

The teenager was born with a congenital heart defect known as hypoplastic left heart syndrome and had waited in the hospital for months before receiving a transplant, according to US media.
