Cut in half in accident, dying 26-yr-old turns out to be a humane hero

Submitted by Subeditor on Wed, 2016-02-17 13:14 Bengaluru: A 26-year-old man, whose body was ripped into two by speeding truck which ran over him, donated his organs right before he died on the way to the hospital.Harish, hailing from Keregowdanahalli, Gubbi taluk, Tumakru district, worked in a private company at OMBR layout, Bengaluru, and lived in a rented house in Laggere.On Tuesday around 8.30am, as Harish was riding his bike near Tippagondanahalli on National Highway-4 near Nelamangala, a speeding truck hit Harish from behind. The impact knocked Harish off his bike and he fell in front of the front wheel of the truck, which ran over his body, virtually cutting him in half.Harish reportedly lay on the road pleading for help from passers-by, one man even filmed the shocking scene (the video is currently circulating on Whatsapp), but none came to his aid.After 20 minutes of agonising wait, an ambulance arrived to transport Harish to the Nelamangala general hospital. But realising that his chances of surviving were slim, Harish reportedly asked the ambulance driver to donate his organs, a truly astonishing gesture.
