A beating heart transported in Hyderabad metro train to save a life

Hyderabad: Hyderabad metro rail authorities facilitated a green channel for the purpose the transportation of a harvested heart on Sunday night in the quickest possible time to save a life.

Following a ‘SOS’ request from Apollo Hospitals, Jubilee Hills, L&T Hyderabad Metro Rail (L&TMRH) created a green channel to transport the beating heart from Nagole to Jubilee Hills Check Post Metro Station.

A special train was pressed into service to ferry a panel of doctors, along with other medicos from the Kamineni Hospital, L.B. Nagar who brought the harvested heart to the Nagole Metro Station at around 1 a.m. The live heart was then immediately rushed inside the waiting metro train.

The special train reached the Jubilee Hills Check Post, in a span of about 25 minutes,  where the ambulance of Apollo Jubilee Hills was waiting to receive the live organ and the medical team.

This activity coincided with the handling of special metro train services for the return journey of about 20,000 spectators who travelled to watch the T20 cricket match at the Rajiv Gandhi International Cricket Stadium, Uppal. The Hindu reported.
