ATLANTA (CBS ATLANTA) -

The young man at the center of a controversial heart transplant has gotten a second chance at life.

CBS Atlanta News was told Anthony Stokes had heart transplant surgery on Tuesday.

He's still recovering at Children's Healthcare of Atlanta at Egleston.

The surgery took about five hours.

Initially Stokes wasn't allowed on the transplant list because of some issues in his past, but the decision was reversed on Aug. 13.
