Kolkata Police creates green corridor on X-mas night for organ transplantIndia Blooms News Service
According to reports, a nearly 22-year-old woman from Asansol- Surabhi Barat, who was being treated in Apollo Gleneagles hospital in city's Bypass area, was declared brain-dead and her family members decided to donate their daughter's kidneys, eyes and liver on Sunday evening.
Doctors decided to transplant her one kidney and liver in the bodies of Bijay Kumar Bhut and Reiza Uvalik respectively, who are under treatment in the same hospital, while the eyes of the woman have already been handed over to the Disha Eye Hospital.
However, the hospital authority and the woman's family members requested the administration to arrange a green corridor to send another kidney to government-run SSKM hospital in central Kolkata.
Accepting the challenge on the festive-night, police successfully created a green corridor and it would take only 9 minutes (10:19 - 10:28 pm.) to traffic the kidney from Apollo Gleneagles to SSKM hospital, according to reports.
Till the latest update came in, the kidney is being transplanted in the body of Baruipur's resident Priyotosh Naskar at SSKM hospital.
