A Georgia couple says a hospital has delayed a life-saving kidney transplant for their two-year-old son who was supposed to receive the organ from his father before it was learned he violated his probation, it was reported on Saturday.
Anthony Dickerson is a 100 percent match for his son, AJ, who was born prematurely without functioning kidneys.
But Emory Hospital said it is ‘reassessing’ the planned transplant after it was learned that Dickerson was arrested in September for possessing a weapon, according to WXIA-TV.
Dickerson was arrested last month by authorities in Gwinnett County.
The arrest took place just before the scheduled transplant on October 3, according to CBS 46 TV.
