Indore : Increasing awareness about organ donation bore fruit on Saturday when for the first time three 3 green corridors were created to transport organs— heart, liver and kidney— to needy patients. Two corridors were formed from Choitram Hospital to Airport to send for heart and liver to New Delhi and Mumbai. While the third green corridor created to send kidney to Aurbhindo Hospital n the city itself.

Bran dead taekwondo champion and karate black belt holder Durgesh son of Premlal Malviya gave life to 3 people. A resident of Khetia, Durgesh met with an accident on Wednesday when he was going to Dhamnod on his bike. His family brought him to Medanta Hospital. After 2 days treatment, he was declared brain dead on Friday night.

After that Jitu Bangani, associated with Muskan Group, met the family members of Durgesh and urged them to donate organs donation and his kin agreed to do so later.

On Friday night, Durgesh was declared brain dead. Though, in case of organ donation the brain dead person has to declare twice as brain dead, hence Durgesh was declared for the second time as brain dead at 1.30pm. Later his body was brought to Choitram Hospital for removal of organs. In the meantime, doctors of Choitram Hospital remained in contact with doctors of the Medanta Hospital, Gurgaon and Fortis Hospital, Mumbai.
