A 50-year-old brain dead man gave a new lease of life to three people. Mahipal Singh, from Kamothe, had met with an accident on December 6th, 2016 at Uran Highway, in Navi Mumbai.
He was admitted to Apollo Hospitals, Navi Mumbai, in a critical condition with severe head injury.
He did not respond to the treatment and eventually was declared brain dead on December 7th, 2016.
‘The liver and both the kidneys of the deceased were transplanted at private hospitals in Mumbai, giving a new lease of life to 3 people.’
The doctors educated the family on organ donation, and with the support of ZTCC [Zonal Transplant Coordination Center], the family agreed to donate his organs with all generosity.
