Das Malaysische Team trauert um ihren Mannschaftskollegen Ganesh Bahadur. Er war während des Badminton-Turniers auf Grund einer Herzattacke zusammengebrochen. Alle Bemühungen der Ärzte der Universitätsklinik Göteborg waren leider vergebens. Am 30. Juni 2011 verstarb Ganesh Bahadur um 9.30 Uhr auf der Intensivstation des Krankenhauses an den Folgen seines Herzinfarkts.
Bemerkenswert war sein letzter Wille: Er stellte seine Organe für die Entnahme zur Verfügung. Das teilte uns sein Sohn Ramesh Bahadur mit. Wahrlich eine große Geste von ihm und seiner Familie.
Hier das offizielle Statement des WTGF-Präsidenten Olivier Coustere:
Dear Country Representatives and Team Managers!
It is with deep regret that WTGF announces the death of Mr Ganesh Bahadur of Malaysia who suffered a heart attack during the Games in Gothenburg.
Everything possible was done to treat Mr Bahadur both at the scene and later in the Sahlgrenska University hospital where he received top priority care.
Sadly, his condition which was initially stabilised, deteriorated - he suffered anoxic damage to his brain leading to his death. He died on 30th June at 9.30pm
The family in Malaysia has been kept fully informed and have been in touch constantly with our medical officer in Gothenburg – day and night. They will receive the body which will be repatriated in the coming days.
WTGF will express our sorrow to his family and his team on your behalf – if you wish for any messages of condolence to be relayed to the family, please send them care of WTGF – firstname.lastname@example.org.
"We have unanimously agreed for my father’s organs (i.e : heart, kidneys, lungs, liver) to be donated to the people of Gotenborg. I have already had a discussion with my family members including my mother who has had a very difficult week and after our intial discussion, have decided that it was one of my fath's last wishes.
Ramesh Bahadur (son)
In dieser Stunde gilt die Anteilnahme seiner Familie und seinen Teammitgliedern.
