Noida:  The family of a 28-year-old man agreed to donate five of his organs; liver, corneas and both kidneys which gave a new lease of life to three people on Friday. Formerly an Assistant Professor of architecture at a renowned institute in Gurugram, the patient was declared brain dead late on Thursday at Jaypee Hospital in Noida, after a road accident on November 13. 

"We are thankful to the donor and his family who have taken this courageous step and have given a new life to three people. Organs of a deceased patient can save lives of at least six to eight people," Manoj Luthra, CEO, Jaypee Hospital, Noida, said in a statement.
