A considerate farmer dying on his hospital bed managed to artificially stay alive for two hours on Monday in order to donate his corneas to others.

Wang Li of Tianjin municipality, suffered from fluorosis of the bone, and was bed-ridden for seven years. He agreed to donate his corneas two years ago.

The successful operation helped the two patients. "That's his last wish," said Gao, his wife.
