Woman offers kidney to soldier who survived Siachen avalanche

A housewife today offered to donate a kidney to Lance Naik Hanamanthappa Koppad, who is battling for life after being rescued from Siachen Glacier.

Nidhi Pandey, who lives in Padaria Tula village, about 50 km away from here, said she was aggrieved to know about soldier's condition who clung to life after being buried for six days under 30 feet of snow following an avalanche hitting his post at the glacier.

"It was being broadcast in the news channels that his condition is extremely critical as his liver and kidneys are not functioning properly," she said, adding that she felt that something more should be done for the soldier apart from prayers.

She said that is the reason why she decided to donate her kidney, if required.
"With my husband's consent, I expressed my wish to a news channel through its helpline number that flashed on the screen," Pandey said.

She said she has taken the decision as it could benefit the soldier serving the nation.
