In Indore on Wednesday morning large part of traffic were halted in the city to create a green corridor for a liver transplant issue. In Madhya Pradesh it is the first case of this kind to create green corridors. Ambulance took only 8 minutes to cover 10.5 KM distance towards airport, which usually takes around 50 min in regular days. The liver which was bought from the hospital to airport was then transfer to Delhi via plane. Liver was transferred to Medanta hospital in Gurgaon, where patients was in need of the liver.
Khargone the 40-year-old Rameshwar from Khargone had been ill for some time and was hospitalized in Kede Choithram hospital in Indore. On Wednesday, after his death, the family decided to donate his liver. The Medanta Hospital in Gurgaon got receivers.
How Green Corridor was created-
> Liver can be kept safe just for six hours out of the body. Therefore, it was necessary to reach the receiver earliest.

> Commissioner Sanjay Dubey said police and local administration to make the Green Corridor.
> Ambulance left from Choithram Hospital in afternoon 12:02 minutes.
> Ambulances reached airport at 12:10. Flight left for Delhi at 12.20.
> To make Green corridor happen 60 army personnel were deployed on the way to airport.
