Heart travels from Vishakapatnam to Bengaluru hospital

BENGALURU: A 13-year-old patient got a new lease of life after a heart from Visakhapatnam was transported to Bengaluru by air. The organ was transferred through an exclusive traffic green corridor initiated by Fortis Bannerghatta along with the city taffic police from Kempegowda International airport to the hospital. The ambulance covered a distance of 55 km in 30 minutes.

A potential organ alert was received by the team at Fortis Bannerghatta on Monday evening. The organ was harvested from a 20-year-old male in Visakhapatnam who had met with a road accident and was declared brain dead.
Upon the family’s consent the heart was allocated to Fortis Bannerghatta. The organ started at 9:30 pm from Visakhapatnam and reached the hospital by 10:56 pm.
