At its own initiative, the family asked doctors to harvest the son’s organs – a decision that will help at least 34 people.
The first beneficiaries included a 58-year-old man suffering from end-stage liver failure and at least two other critically ill patients who received organ transplants on Tuesday.
The donations were made possible by the Juneja family of east Delhi, whose only son, Anmol, suffered irreversible brain damage in a road accident on Friday. Anmol was a BCA student.
Anmol’s heart valve, pancreas, cornea and at least 30 other organs have been preserved for transplant, said doctors at AIIMS Trauma Centre where the organ retrieval was conducted.
