Kottayam: Kottayam native Navis, who was declared brain dead on Friday, will live on through eight others.

Health Minister Veena George said on Saturday that the family members of the 25-year-old have consented to donate organs, including the heart.

As per the intimation provided to Rajagiri Hospital, Ernakulam, from the Kerala Organ Sharing Registry(KNOS) the heart, liver, intestine, two hands, both kidneys and cornea from two eyes were harvested for donation.

Navis was doing his master’s in Accounting in France. He had reached home at Vadavathur here as the classes were online. On September 16, Navis was found unconscious by his sister Vismaya. Low blood sugar was the presumed reason and he was rushed to the Caritas Hospital in Kottayam. With his health condition not improving, Navis was shifted to Rajagiri Hospital on September 20.
