Teenís Organs Save 3 Lives
When 14-year-old girl Radha Rani was brought to Sawai Man Singh Hospital, Rajasthan, in a critical condition, little did anyone realise that she would create a history of sorts by giving a new lease of life to three persons.

Radha Rani's kidneys were transplanted into two patients at SMS Hospital. Her liver was sent to Army's RR Hospital in Delhi through a special Indian Air Force helicopter where it was transplanted into a patient who happens to be the wife of a soldier.

State Health Minister Rajendra Rathore said it was the first of its kind cadaver transplant in a government hospital in the state, addressing a press conference here on Wednesday.

"The donor had been brought to the hospital on February 22 from Sawai Madhopur but was declared brain dead on Tuesday. While one recipient Braj Kishore (47) was admitted in the same hospital, another patient Shakuntala (50) was admitted at Mahatma Gandhi Hospital from where she was shifted to SMS Hospital for the transplant," he said.

Meanwhile, the hospital got in touch with RR Hospital in New Delhi where a patient needed a liver transplant.
