3-way kidney swap saves New York woman's life

Fox 5 New York reported that Tom wasn’t a donor match, but last week, Angela received a kidney from a donor as part of a three-way swap. A national program that connects transplant patients with donors in other states who have been mismatched with a loved one made Angela’s transplant possible.
