But after exiting the chopper, a medic stumbled and the plastic-wrapped heart tumbled out of a cooler onto the street.

Newspaper reader Christian Sabido posted one of the more printable online comments Wednesday, saying: “Anybody can make a mistake, but with this type of thing you should be careful.”
