The Delhi Traffic Police created a green route to carry a live heart between two hospitals on Wednesday. In 4.25 minutes, the live heart was successfully delivered from AIIMS to Fortis Hospital.
According to Shweta Singh Chauhan, Deputy Commissioner of Police, Traffic, South East, it was a difficult assignment because Ring Road, Captain Gaur Marg, CV Raman Marg, and Mathura Road saw a high level of traffic and are heavily frequented by commuters.
But, with the necessity and compassion in mind, the challenge was embraced, and a green lane was successfully granted to ambulances transporting human organs, she noted.
A distance of around 5.5 km was completed in 4.25 minutes for heart transfer, which normally takes 13-15 minutes. The video was also posted by the Delhi Traffic Police, who stated, “Doing it from the heart, doing it for the heart!”

The administration of Fortis Hospital appreciates the efforts and help offered by Delhi Traffic Police. To enable this vital transit, a green corridor was built from AIIMS to Fortis Hospital in New Friends Colony, and the organ was successfully moved, according to DCP Chauhan.
The heart belonged to a brain-dead 55-year-old lady who was admitted to AIIMS. Her family made the decision to donate her heart to a 19-year-old guy who has been in pain for the past 1.5 years.
