Sajal Kar (20 years old) met with a bike accident on 18th Dec and was brought to CMRI in a very critical state. On 19th he was declared brain dead by the doctors. The family of Sajal Kar graciously consented to donate his organs – heart, kidney, liver. CMRI performed for the first time a cadaver kidney transplant, the receiver was a young woman and the other kidney was sent to Apollo hospital. The heart and liver were transported to CMC and SSKM respectively through the green corridor created by the Kolkata police.

CMRI team salutes the Kar family for their immense contribution to humanity through this invaluable gift, which has given a new lease of life to 4 people.
