Viewers were able to see a live kidney transplant surgery thanks to Channel 5’s ‘Operation Live’ so that a dad could save his son.

The father, Daniel donated one of his kidneys to his 33-year-old son Eugene, who suffers from Lupus. Daniel’s organ was removed before the live show, which took place at Royal London Hospital. The two-and-half hour operation showed Eugene receiving the organ.

The viewers were stuck to the live visuals as they were something unbelievable on TV. Scottish presenter Nicky Campbell hosted the show, alongside an expert who explained what was going on during the surgery.

Eugune, has a three-year-old son. He also has a dialysis machine in his bedroom to clean his blood, as the kidneys no longer do it.

Speaking on the show, he said: “I can’t wait to get rid of this machine because, although it is a lifesaver, it’s a burden because it’s restricted the kind of lifestyle I have.

“With the new kidney, I’ll be able to go back to the normal lifestyle I used to have.”

Viewers were amazed by the incredible work of the surgeons, as they took to Twitter to praise them and Daniel, and to encourage people to become an organ donor.

Here are some of the reactions:

The next episode will show viewers a spine straightening, followed by a live brain surgery.
