When a crisis strikes Mumbai, its residents display a never-say-die attitude. Down, but never out seems to be the motto of the Mumbaikars.
M T Patil, medical social worker at the hospital, admitted to rediff.com that the hospital administration has been finding it difficult coping with the rush of good samaritans.
"We have limited storage capacity for blood. Blood has to be used within a period of 35 day, else it gets spoiled. So for we are taking only limited blood donation. We have taken down phone numbers and addresses of those we are not able to accommodate right now," he said.
Patil said 30 bottles of blood have been collected from donors.
