The parents of 21-year-old brain-dead man, Vineeth Raj, have donated his kidneys and eyes, too.
He was the only son of Krishna Moolya and Geetha, who hail from Manjeshwar, Kasargod district. Since the family is poor, Raj was working at an under-construction building in Mangaluru.
On Tuesday night, he suffered an electric shock and fell from the second floor. He was rushed to a hospital and then to AJ Hospital where doctors declared him brain-dead on Wednesday night.
After his parents wished to donate his organs, doctors at the hospital informed the Zonal Coordination Committee of Karnataka for Transplantation, which arranged for harvesting of the organs.
While his liver was transplanted into a man in Bengaluru, one of his kidneys was donated to a patient at AJ Hospital and the other to a recipient at Yenepoya Hospital.
