Probe into Bri­ton’s lost kid­ney

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

The body of a 24-year Bri­tish man who died on the is­land of Rhodes in June 2000 has been ex­humed so a dis­pute over a miss­ing or­gan can be re­solved. Christo­pher Rochester died from in­ter­nal bleed­ing af­ter be­ing left unat­tended on a hos­pi­tal gur­ney. The 24-yearold had ear­lier fallen from a ho­tel bal­cony. He was found to be miss­ing a kid­ney when his body was flown home. An or­gan later sent to the UK from Greece failed a DNA match, prompt­ing Greek authorities to re­quest ad­di­tional sam­ples from the body. A hos­pi­tal doc­tor on the is­land was con­victed of man­slaugh­ter through neg­li­gence in con­nec­tion with the death in 2008. But a row has per­sisted over the miss­ing or­gan.
