A team of doctors at Fortis harvested five organs – a kidney and liver were sent to its Bannerghatta Road unit, the heart to its Fortis’ Chennai unit, another kidney to INU Hospital and the corneas to Nethradhama eye hospital, said a statement from Fortis.

In the other, a 30-year-old woman, who met with an accident near Chitradurga district and was shifted to Fortis hospital, Bannerghatta Road here, for further treatment was declared brain-dead by the doctors.

Following this, her family decided to donate her organs.
