HYDERABAD: An eight-year-old girl G Manaswini, who lost her life in an accident turned out to be the saviour for three kids, as her kidneys and liver, which were donated by her family members, were transplanted on Thursday. The girl’s body was also donated to Gandhi Medical College on Friday.

Though she was rushed to a private hospital in Hyderabad, the doctors declared her brain dead.

Manaswini’s grand father was unable to bear the loss of his daughter and he along with close relatives rushed her to Apollo Hospital on Thursday, hoping against hope to revive her. But all their efforts turned futile.

“Manaswini had suffered a head injury in the accident. In spite of our best efforts and wishes we could not save the girl. Except the head injury there were no other injuries, thus enabling her organs to be donated,” said Anand Subramaniam, doctor who examined the girl at Apollo Hospital.

The impact of the accident was so severe that Manaswini’s father had died in the accident and her mother is battling for life.

Shattered by the loss of their darling, the relatives decided that she should live through others and donated her organs.

“Already kidneys and liver have been transplanted to three eight-year-old kids. Heart valves have also been harvested which are preserved and can be donated to two other kids,” said G Swarnalatha, Incharge Jeevandan, Telangana.
