A kidney destined for a transplant was loaded on the wrong plane Tuesday.

The organ was supposed to go on an American Airlines flight from Chicago to Washington D.C., but instead ended up on a flight to Las Vegas.

Once the error was realized, the plane returned to O'Hare Airport And the kidney was placed on the right flight. American says the delay had no impact on the transplant.
