Five receive organs after Staffordshire University student dies

Five people have received vital organ donations after an art student died.

Shane Dineen, 20, who studied at Staffordshire University, suffered a bleed on the brain and died in January.

A teenage girl received his liver and one of his kidneys went to a 60-year-old man who was on a waiting list for eight years.

The team at Royal Stoke University Hospital “worked against extra challenges created by the pandemic” to facilitate the operations.

Mr Dineen’s other kidney was given to a 30-year-old woman, while a 30-year-old man received his lungs and a 20-year-old man received his heart.

“Something good has come out of something truly awful,” his mother Vicky Scott said, adding her son had given the recipients “the best gift”.

Ms Scott, 48, from Bentilee, Stoke-on-Trent, said organ donation was not something she had discussed with her son.
