A 26 year old youth, who was declared brain dead after an accident, gave a new lease of life to at least four people suffering from end-stage organ failure. His family decided to donate all his organs, including his heart, liver and two kidneys, which were used for transplantation.
Doctors at Indraprastha Apollo Hospital, where the transplants took place between Sunday and Monday, said Ashutosh’s heart was donated to a 33-year-old man diagnosed with very poor heart function.

His second kidney was donated to another person in a different hospital.
