    In a village in West Bengal India, a 12-year-old girl took her life so that her organs could be used to save her brother’s life and restore her father’s vision. But the suicide note detailing her wishes was found the day after she was cremated.

    Mumpy Sarkar had heard the elders of her village say the only way to save her brother and allow his father to see would be organ transplant and surgery. Her family did not have enough money for either procedure. Sarkar decided to commit suicide, donate her organs and save her family the cost of her dowry, the Times of India reported.

    On July 27, Sarkar was alone in her home. Her mother was getting rice, her father was at work. She swallowed the pesticide Thiodan. She then ran to her father, who was about a half kilometer away, according to the publication.

    “She told him that she had dreamed that someone had poured poison into her mouth and her stomach ached,â€￾ the village council leader Tapas Tarafar recounted.

    Her father took her to the local pharmacy for medication but her condition worsened. They went to the Baranberia hospital where Sarkar was pronounced dead on arrival.

    The Daily Mail reports that Samir Poddar, the local state council representative, visited the village and has promised financial aid for treatment of both family members.
