Mysuru: In a heart-warming incident, the liver of a brain dead person was transported from Mysuru to Bengaluru in a record time of 2.15 hours on Wednesday, May 21. The liver was transferred from BGS Apollo Hospital, Kuvempunagar, Mysuru to Apollo Hospital, Bannerghatta in Bengaluru.

This is second time this year that the Mysuru police created a green-corridor to ensure quick transportation of organs.

The donor was 53-year-old Geeta of Rottikatte village in Mandya.

While she was travelling with her husband on a two-wheeler in Kollegal, they met with an accident. Geeta fell off the vehicle and sustained critical head injuries. The accident took place last Saturday.

She was referred to BGS Apollo Hospital. However, her condition worsened and she was declared brain dead on Tuesday morning. With a noble intention to save as many lives as possible with Geeta’s body, her distraught husband and son decided to donate her organs.

Her eyes and one kidney were donated to patients in Mysuru itself while the other kidney was donated to a patient in BH Hospital, Bengaluru.

The liver found a match with a 55-year-old patient at Apollo Hospital, Bannerghatta Road. According to reports, the patient had been waiting for a liver transplant for the past six months.
