Army officials said that organ transplants from a newlywed Corporal from the Indian Air Force who was declared brain dead last week were successful.

Despite the greatest efforts of the medical staff at the renowned hospital, Corporal Sachin (27), who was transported to Army Research and Referral Hospital (AHRR) last week with brain injuries, could not be rescued.

According to Army officials, the young wife and elderly parents of the airman were counselled by hospital administrators from the Army to persuade them to give his organs to other serving members in order to save their lives.

According to authorities, “After counselling his young wife Ms. Manisha (22) and parents, they agreed to donate the heart, liver, lungs, both kidneys, and cornea to offer other patients a fresh lease on life.”

The deceased officer’s lungs were sent via the green corridor in the nation’s capital to Medanta Hospital. While the heart, liver, another kidney, and both cornea were utilised for patients receiving treatment at the Army Hospital, one kidney was allotted to AIIMS.

According to Army authorities, “all the organs were successfully transplanted to serving members.”

Nine heart transplants, four liver transplants, and countless kidney transplants have already been carried out by AHRR this year.
