Over 100 Police Officials Set up a Green Corridor to Transport a Liver for Transplant in 13 Minutes!

Over 100 police officials from Bhopal made an emergency organ transplant possible by transporting a liver from the airport to the hospital in a matter of 13 minutes.

Creating a green corridor in Bhopal for the first time, the policemen presented an excellent example of efficiency and coordination by helping the ambulance cover a distance of 12 km in 13 minutes.

Green corridors are created with manually operated street signals in situations of medical emergency. This helps in avoiding peak traffic and making the commute quick and efficient.

“The liver for the transplant had been secured from a donor at the CHL Hospital in Indore and was sent to Bhopal via air. The aeroplane carrying the liver landed at 7.15 am at the Bhopal airport. The team of the police officers departed from the airport at 7.33 am and reached Siddhanta Hospital at 7.46 am,” ASP (Transport), Sameer Yadav, told ANI.

Bhopal Police deployed over 100 police officials, including an Additional SP, four DSPs, 20 Police Sub-Inspectors and 80 police constables for the task.

Green corridors are now being used frequently in India for transportation of organs. Another example of such green corridor was seen in Kolkata last week when the city Police transported a liver and a kidney from Apollo Gleneagles Hospital (AGH) to SSKM hospital in Bhawanipore. According to a report in The Indian Express, the distance of over 10 km was covered in 14 minutes.
