Her family approved organ donation after she was declared brain dead.

Meanwhile, in the last month a Chennai resident in his final year of college sustained a catastrophic injury. The teen's brain was determined to be "inactive/dead," and despite all efforts, he could not be saved. Five people have been given new beginnings. The student's brain dead organs were donated to them. A final-year college student from Chennai reportedly suffered a major injury earlier this month on the congested Grand Southern Trunk (GST) Road outside of the city.
