MYSURU: All M C Naveen had in the world to call his own after losing their parents, was sister Namana. But when she met with an accident that left her brain-dead, it did not stop him from donating her vital organs, “so she could give life to other people”. And the traffic police played their part in the heart-touching gesture by providing a green corridor for the quick transportation of the organs from a hospital here to Bengaluru on Saturday.
In all, five patients will benefit from the sister-brother “largess of the highest order”, according to doctors at the super-specialty hospital who suggested the donation to Naveen after Namana failed to respond to treatment after bring brought their “in a critical condition” after the accident.
“When doctors said that she could not be brought back to life but could give lives to five people with her organs, I agreed,” said Naveen, who raised Namana all alone for years after they lost their parents. It was then that Naveen encouraged doctors at the hospital to shift her vital organs through a green corridor to reach Bengaluru in a healthy state.
A visit to a nearby temple turned fatal for Namana when a speeding vehicle crashed into their two-wheeler. Her friend, Arvind Rao, died on the spot and Namana, 22, a final-year B Com student of Sakleshpur taluk, Hassan district, suffered grievous injuries and was rushed to the hospital.
It was after she did not respond to treatment that the doctors impressed upon Naveen to donate her organs. A request was then made to the traffic police to facilitate the quick shifting of the organs to the state capital. Doctors of BGS Hospital requested Mysuru Traffic Police officials, who decided on the “green corridor with zero traffic” from the hospital to Bengaluru.
Namana’s organs were retrieved by 11.45 am and transported in a special ambulance accompanied by Inspector Muniyappa N of the Siddhartha Nagar Traffic Police Station.
