The Life Of 6 New People Betters Because of One Organ Donor

I am very thankful to the family of the donor. This will encourage everyone to come forward.

A private hospital here retrieved the heart, liver, kidneys and corneas from a young male donor who had been declared brain dead and at least six people were given a new lease of life here on Friday.

The donor, who was injured in a road accident during Durga Puja, was declared brain dead on Thursday at Apollo Gleneagles. The operation was then conducted at the hospital and his heart, liver and one kidney were transplanted into three recipients.

The kidneys saved the lives of two patients with advanced kidney failure, one at Apollo Gleneagles and another at SSKM Hospital,” the hospital said in a statement.
