Trial to encourage transplant donors

A dying 12-year-old boy in Guangzhou recently donated his organs to help others, a sign of the country's progress in setting up a transparent and effective system of organ donation, experts said.

Identified only as Luo, the boy died on July 23 in the city's Nanfang Hospital, where he was receiving treatment for a malignant brain tumor.

"From later that day to 8 the next morning, the hospital staff conducted operations to transplant his liver, kidneys and cornea into four patients, who are all now recovering very well," said Wang Yong, organ donation coordinator at the hospital.
