Saturday, 20th March 2010
A five-year-old brain-dead girl’s kidneys were transplanted on her father at Chennai government hospital on Thursday.

Janani, the daughter of Chandrasekharan, was brought to hospital in the early hours of Wednesday after she had an accident near Chittoor in Andhra Pradesh.

The girl, who had suffered head injuries, was declared brain dead at 12.47am on Wednesday. After a second formal declaration, doctors sought permission from the girl’s parents to harvest her organs and they agreed. When doctors learnt that the father was a kidney patient, they did compatibility tests and decided to use her kidneys on him.
