On his birthday, 32-year-old brain dead man gifted a new lease of life to four people after his family agreed to donate his organs to needy ones.
The welder from Pune had suffered a stroke a few days ago and was rushed to the KEM Hospital, Pune. On 7th June, his condition deteriorated and finally was declared brain dead. However, his pregnant wife consented to the cadaver donations and signed the documents for organ donation – heart, liver and both kidneys. This gesture gave life to four desperate patients who were the recipients of the deceased’s organs.
While the one kidney went to waiting patient at the Ruby Hall Clinic and another to Sassoon General Hospital, the liver was retained by KEM Hospital. The heart was rushed from Pune to New Era Hospital, Nagpur.
