New Delhi: In what could be termed as an act of fearlessness, an ambulance carrying a cadaver heart from Pune managed to reach Mumbai in 1 hour and 35 minutes saving the life of a 14-year-old boy suffering from a heart condition.
Authorities had to create a green corridor between the two cities to allow the heart to reach Mumbai in the stipulated time which otherwise would have taken at least three hours.
The heart recipient was suffering from a heart ailment called dilated cardiomyopathy, which was deteriorating swiftly and required a transplant.
As per authorities, this miraculous drive was the 17th heart transplant recorded in the city.
