Houston, TX: A baby girl, who was born with her heart beating outside of her body, has gone home on January 25, after she was given a pink protective shell to protect her vital organ.

Audrina Cardenas was born in October with a rare congenital disease called ectopia cordis, where her heart formed outside the chest.

The disease affects only one in eight million and nine out of 10 sufferers are stillborn or die within three days.
