NAWABSHAH: A Nawabshah couple proved they are a perfect match for each other, as a woman donated part of her liver to save her husband’s life. “He is my ‘jigar’ that’s why I gave part of my liver to save his life,” a woman lying on the hospital bed said with a smile on her face.
Replying to a question, she said they are married for the last 10 years with no kids. Showing her bond for her husband, the woman said since they don’t have any kids, her husband is everything for her and she can donate every part of her body just to save his life. Separately, Pakistan Kidney and Liver Institute and Research Centre (PKLI&RC) made history by performing one kidney transplant and one liver transplant the same day to save two lives in Pakistan.
The liver and kidney grafts were initially transported via helicopter to Dubai where the UAE Organ Donation and Transplantation and UAE Ministry of Health team airlifted the two organs in a specially hired five-seater commercial jet to hand over them to the PKLI&RC transplant team.
Meanwhile, a man was seriously injured after being hit by a train while he was filming a video for the popular video streaming platform TikTok in Nawabshah Monday morning. According to police, the incident happened near VIP Colony when the man who was filming a video on the tracks was hit by a speeding train.
On getting information, an ambulance reached the spot and shifted him to a nearby hospital. He is stated to be in critical condition. The man was identified as 28-year-old Shahzad Bhatti. Last year in March, a teenager was hit and killed by a passenger train in Lahore while being filmed walking along the tracks for a TikTok stunt. Asif was walking next to the tracks while his friend was filming his TikTok video. “The moving train hit him while he was posing for a video and walking on the railway track,” a police official had said.
