Chandigarh, February 18
A 27-year-old Sukhwinder Singh was mercilessly hit by a speeding vehicle while going back in his motorcycle near Kharar, causing him fatal head injuries on February 9.
After mishap, Sukhwinder was immediately rushed to a local Civil Hospital in Kharar. He was referred to the PGIMER.
All the efforts to save Sukhwinder proved futile with his condition deteriorating as he was put on life support. After five days of struggle, Sukhwinder was declared brain dead on February 14.
His Father Gurpal Singh said, “I am happy that my son became a saviour for others by being an organ donor.”
Following the family’s decision, the kidneys retrieved from the donor Sukhwinder were transplanted to two terminal patients suffering from “end-stage debilitating kidney ailment” and dependent on kidney dialysis for long.
Apart from the kidneys, the corneas of the donor were also harvested, which on transplantation, restored the eyesight of two other patients, sustaining hope in four lives in all here at PGIMER.
