She was admitted to the hospital on Saturday after suffering cerebral haemorrhage. Her relatives gave their consent to donate her organs when she was declared brain dead.

“When we were sure that her life could not be saved, we decided to donate her organs. We are happy that it could save five lives,” her brother Tomy said.

Her liver was transplanted to Adv B Manmadan, 56, and kidney to Ashok Kumar, 57.

Both of them, who were admitted to Lakeshore Hospital, are now recuperating.

Her corneas were handed over to a blood bank at Angamaly. A team consisting of Dr Bijoy Abraham, Dr Mahesh and headed by Dr Philip G Thomas, multi-organ transplant director of Lakeshore Hospital, did the liver transplantation.

The kidney transplant procedure was headed by urologist Dr George P Abraham. Dr Datson George P and Dr Mohan A Mathew, head of the department (anaesthesia), also monitored the operation.

Laly is survived by husband Antony A V and son Albin.
