Humanitarian Shouts for Organ Donation in Last Minutes of Life

Braveheart beating for organ donation and not for life sowed seeds of humanity in the last minutes of death.

A 23-year-old resident of Bengaluru met with a tragic accident while returning from his village Gubbi, in Tumakuru district. The accident took place in the Tumakuru-Bengaluru National Highway, where a lorry loaded with sugar bags tried to overtake Harish Nanjappa's bike. Unfortunately, his body went under the wheels of the lorry, got cut into two and was dragged for a few meters.

As he laid into two, the first cry he made to the nearby villagers was to donate his organs. Without yelling to save his life, the man asked the passerby to take him to a hospital for harvesting his organs.

He was immediately taken to a hospital and the only organ that could be collected from his body were his eyes. As he was wearing a helmet, his eyes were saved, but all the other organs got damaged in the accident.

His eyes were donated to Narayana Nethralaya. Doctors and the villagers were astonished by the man's presence of mind and hailed him for his passion for humanity. Nanjappa gave his voice for organ donation in his last minutes even without caring for his life.
