INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) - Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department Officer David Moore’s family donated his organs on Wednesday.
The Moore family lost their son, and the IMPD lost their brother, but other people will get a chance at life.
“Somebody is going to get a darn good heart,” said Moore’s mother, Jo Ann Moore.
The whole process takes just a day.
It starts with paperwork, testing is done, and an electronic match system pairs Moore's organs with prospective recipients.
The Moore's don't know anything about who their son's organs will be helping, and while those receiving his donation won't be told Officer Moore's name or how he died, they will know his generosity.
“Sometime today there are going to be several people who receive an amazing phone call because David is going to continue to live through them, and he is going to help them have a better life,” said Moore’s father, Spencer Moore.
There are 105,000 people throughout the U.S. waiting for organ transplants and 1,300 of them are in Indiana.
