  • Description

    Professor Christian Barnard, the South African heart Transplant pioneer and his teenage wife of only a few hours, arrived in Rome from Johannesburg last night (Saturday, February 14th) on the first stop of their-round-the world honeymoon. The 47-year-old heart surgeon married Barbara Zoellner, 19, in a private ceremony at her parent's home.

    Professor barnard, perspiring and his hair ruffled, muttered inaudibly as he pushed through about 100 reporters and photographers at Rome Airport.

    Refusing to make any statement, the couple climbed quickly into a waiting car and sped away in the direction of the city.

    After spending a few days in Rome, the newlyweds are expected to visit the United States, Norway, Lebanon and Switzerland before returning to South Africa next month to settle in Cape Town
