Police forms 'green corridor' to transport harvested organ

Press Trust of India  |  Kochi 

Extending a helping hand, Police today took necessary steps to ensure that a hartal called by ruling CPI(M)-led on the issue, would not affect a medical emergency in the state.

They virtually formed a 'green corridor' to transport a liver from a hospital in Kozhikode to another hospital in Kochi for a transplant.



"It usually takes more than five hours to travel between Kozhikode and Kochi but our team of doctors could cover the stretch in two-and-a-half hours. It was possible only because of the great help offered by police," a spokesperson for the PVS Memorial Hospital here said.

The liver of an 18-year-old girl, Keerthana, who was declared brain dead, was harvested at Baby Memorial Hospital in Kozhikode by a team of doctors from the PVS Memorial Hospital, the spokesperson said.

They started the journey with the harvested organ at 9.15 am and reached Kochi in two-and-a-half hours, she said.

The liver is being transplanted into 65-year-old K V Joseph.

Doctors and Joseph's relatives thanked police for the help they extended on the hartal day.
