Green Corridor Helps 35-Year-Old Man To Get Heart From Brain Dead

A green corridor was created in Bengaluru to facilitate the transportation of the live heart of an accident victim, who was declared brain dead.

The 30-km journey from BGS Hospital, Kengeri, to Narayana Hrudayalaya near Electronics City was undertaken swiftly in just 32 minutes on December 20. This is the seventh such green corridor done this year at Narayana Health's flagship cardiac hospital.

The donor, Kiran Kumar was a 19-year-old college student, who had met with an accident when he was returning from Nandi Hills with his friends.

He was treated at BGS Global Hospital and the doctors declared him brain dead on December 19. His father agreed to donate his son's organs.

Kiran's father, Prabhu Kumar, said, "I lost my wife a year ago and now, my younger son is no more. I am yet to come to grips with this loss. If someone can get a new lease of life through Kiran, I think he has done his part."
