Hubballi: A 27-year-old brain-dead youth gave four people a fresh lease of life by donating his organs. The parents and family consented to donate his organs, and the doctors at the SDM Hospital harvested the donor’s kidneys, liver, and heart.

The heart would be transplanted to a 50-year-old man admitted at KLE’s Dr Prabhakar Kore Hospital, and a kidney would be transplanted to a patient admitted at the same hospital. This time also, the twin cities police and Belagavi city police have created a green corridor to transport the heart from SDM Hospital, Sattur, Dharwad to KLE Hospital in Belagavi.

The liver would be flown to Apollo (Bapist) Hospital in Bengaluru. According to sources, another kidney would be transplanted into a patient at SDM Hospital. The doctors have thanked the donor’s family for their kind gesture.

The patient’s identity was withheld at the request of family members. The sources said the patient suffered some kind of brain clot.
