Oklahoma City Zoo officials say, Tuesday, April 8, 2014, that Kyah, who had a terminal heart defect, has died during surgery. Kyah had an extra blood vessel wrapped around her esophagus _ a symptom of a congenital heart defect _ that prevented her from holding down solid food. She was euthanized during surgery when surgeons realized she would not overcome complications of the hours-long surgery, said zoo spokeswoman Candice Rennels. (AP Photo/Sue Ogrocki, File)

FILE - In this March 18, 2013, file photo, Shane Mercer holds a photo of his father, Airman Will Small, as his mother Alecia Mercer looks on at their home in Kinston, N.C. Small, whose organs were donated to four patients after he died, had at least two untreated raccoon bites several months before he became sick, and tests confirm his rabies-infected kidney led to a Maryland recipient's death. An article in the March 27 issue of Zoonoses and Public Health says social media played an invaluable role in the investigation, allowing officials to find someone who was seated next to the infected donor on a commercial flight in 2011. That person was assessed and not recommended for the shots. (AP Photo/Allen Breed, File)
