A death that gave life to five people

Thursday April 21, 2011 01:59:08 PM, IANS

Chandigarh: Though she died in a road accident last week, 17-year-old Reena will live in the collective memory of five patients who have got a new lease of life because of her donated organs.

Reena, a resident of Jind in Haryana, was seriously injured and was declared brain dead at the Postgraduate Institute of Medical Education and Research (PGIMER) here.

Her distraught family consented to donate Reena's liver, both kidneys and two corneas, giving a ray of hope to the five patients.

Her liver was successfully transplanted to a 44-year-old patient from Uttar Pradesh April 15. This was the first liver transplant surgery in PGIMER, one of the leading medical institute of northern India.

PGIMER director K.K. Talwar said: "Seven to eight departments were involved in this operation. The donor, whose brain was dead, helped five people to live a new life. It is really exemplary."

PGIMER has decided to place a photograph of Reena in its premises -- as a tribute.
