The Noida Traffic Police on Friday created a green corridor to facilitate the movement of a harvested human organ over a distance of around 14 km in 14 minutes for a transplant operation that saved a man’s life, officials said.
Senior traffic officer Ganesh Prasad Saha was alerted that the organ was to be transported from Delhi’s Sir Ganga Ram Hospital to Jaypee Hospital in Noida, the officials said.
“However, the challenge was to create the harvested organ available at the Jaypee Hospital in Sector 128 within a timeframe. it had been a race against the clock,” a political candidate said.
A police spokesperson said, “DCP Traffic Saha had entrusted Traffic Inspector Ashutosh with the responsibility of coordinating the movement. He immediately reached the Chilla border adjoining Delhi while a green corridor was immediately founded along the route and therefore the ambulance reached the hospital in 14 minutes.”
Due to the readiness of the Noida Traffic police, a man’s life was saved, the spokesperson said, adding the patient’s members of the family were overwhelmed with gratitude for the personnel engaged within the support.
