Mangaluru: 23-year-old Gaurav who was on his way to pick his mother up near Vamanjoor met with an accident on Tuesday October 25 at around 6:40 PM. He was immediately rushed to AJ Hospital’s Emergency Department in critical stage, and was later declared as brain dead.

Knowing the situation, his mother and brothers, decided to donate his organs to needy patient. Accordingly the transplant coordinator informed ‘Jeeva Sarthakathe’, the government body to regulate organ
donations. After the necessary legal clearances, the organs were allotted to A. J Hospital (Kidney), KMC,
Mangalore (Kidney), KMC Manipal (Corneas) and B. G .S Hospital, Mysore (Liver). The Police Department helped
to establish green corridor to reach organs to respective hospitals.

The noble decision of organ donation by the family of Gaurav gave fresh lease of life to five people. He has become a beacon of light even after his death.
