Sister of man killed in Sudan falls to death
Thiruvananthapuram: The family of Ranjith Nelluvelil, CEO of Kochi-based Lots Shipping who was shot dead in Sudan on Monday, had to bear another tragedy as his sister who had come to his house on hearing the news tripped down a staircase and died of serious head injuries.
The relatives of Sherly (49), Ranjith`s sister, decided to donate her organs after she was declared brain dead when admitted to a private hospital after the fall on Tuesday night.
Sherly`s son Jitin took the initiative to donate the organs as she had earlier expressed her wish to donate organs after death.
A team of doctors retrieved her liver, kidneys, and cornea for patients under treatment at various hospitals. The liver would be transplanted to a patient from Kothamangalam, the doctors at Sree Uthradam Thirunal (SUT) hospital said.
The kidneys and eyes would be for patients in the priority list of medical college hospital and the regional eye hospital, they said.
Ranjith, 56, Chief Executive Officer of Lots Shipping, was waylaid and killed in a theft attempt by thugs in southern Sudan when he was returning to his hotel. He had gone to Sudan three weeks ago in connection with a project related to the maintenance of three barges operated there.
