Guy Schreiber, a 24-year-old university student who was killed in a road accident while walking to a bus station on the way to his studies, has saved seven people with organs donated by his family.
Schreiber was declared brain dead at the Rabin Medical Center-Beilinson Campus in Petah Tikva when doctors said they could do nothing to save him.
His parents said he had often mentioned the importance of having an ADI organ-donor card.
His heart went to a 60-year-old man who had had a temporary artificial heart in his chest for three-and-a-half years; his lungs went to a 67-year-old man; a kidney was transplanted in a 71-year-old man and another in a 43-year-old woman; his liver went to a 55-year-old woman. His corneas were transplanted into two different teenagers.
