He promised to change his misguided ways if he got a new heart, but evidently troubled Anthony Stokes was unable to make good on those vows.

The Georgia teen died Tuesday after a botched home invasion, crashing a stolen car and ending the troubled life that was extended back in 2013, when he got a controversial heart transplant.

Stokes, 17, wrecked the carjacked sedan into a pole as he tried to flee police, authorities said, and the 33-year-old Roswell woman he hit with a car while fleeing from a botched robbery was hospitalized in stable condition.

The young man failed to make good on the promise he made to turn his life around in 2013, when he was denied a needed heart transplant because of behavioral issues and disobeying doctor’s orders.

At the time, Stokes was given six to nine months to live and the banishment by doctors at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta was essentially a “death sentence,” said activists who came to his defense.

The story sparked national outrage and the hospital eventually relented, completing the surgery that August, just seven days after he was put on the transplant list. A total of 63 Georgia patients received a heart transplant in 2013, according to the United Network for Organ Sharing, including six who were between the ages of 11 and 17.

The family said at the time that they did not know the donor's identity.

“He’s a young boy. He's going to make mistakes, but I still think he deserves a second chance,” said his mom Melencia Hamilton.

That chance ended this week just off the intersection of Alpharetta Highway and Hembree Road in Roswell, Ga., some 25 miles north of Atlanta, officials said.

Stokes, of Decatur, allegedly carjacked a Honda, then burst into a Roswell home and shot at an elderly woman as he tried to rob her, WSB-TV reported.

“A lady said a person kicked in the door to break into the house. She was inside the living room and saw the suspect, who was wearing a mask,” Lisa Holland, of the Roswell Police Department, told the news station.

Stokes then took off at a high speed as cops chased him down the highway. He smashed into a 33-year-old pedestrian before losing control and plowing into a pole.

"He did a fishtail spin going around to the right and hit a pedestrian. I saw a white shirt fly up in the air,” witness Claudia Kuklis told WSB.

Clementina Hernandez was hospitalized in stable condition, but Stokes, who was cut from the mangled wreckage, died later Tuesday at the hospital, police said.

Besides time constraints, transplanted organs end up a mess of inflammation and scar tissue. Theoretically it would be possible to retransplant, but the organ probably would not be viable enough to go through the process a second time. I have heard of it with happening with kidneys though.

The sad part is, he did not meet transplant criteria but was given one after civil rights groups played the race card . Sadly someone did not get a heart that was more qualified due to racism .

Some one died because of the lefts racism .... Not including the sweet person he took out during the crime spree.. Perhaps he did some good for society after the transplant. .. Work in a soup kitchen or something . ... Perhaps not.

I love how random isolated incidents are turned into a leftist conspiracy. I'm sure there's an internal logic to that kind of thinking, but it's one that probably only makes sense to people who don't go out much.

It's simple. This is the easiest way to dissociate someone from the collective masses. Folks in here get to dance on the graves of the perp without feeling any remorse because they don't see the person as one of them.

What was that Jesus said about judging others? Also, he was 17. Teenagers aren't exactly famous for making great decisions at the best of times.

TBF, lib makes sure he ONLY judges certain people. His wrath is squarely placed on minorities. So Jesus might show him leniency.
