Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - A Fargo boy in need of a double lung transplant had another false alarm last night.

The family of ten year old Jordan Peterson got word that a possible donor was available.

Doctors went so far as to anesthetize Jordan at Texas Children's Hospital in Houston, so he could be ready for the donor lungs. But according to a public CaringBridge post from his father, Dan Peterson, turns out there was a contusion on one of the lungs, so it wasn't the best scenario for Jordan.

The last false alarm for Jordan was in February, when bad weather prevented doctors from traveling to get a set of donor lungs.
