Oklahoma Deputy Donates Organ to Complete Stranger

July 04, 2016  | 

It's an officer's motto to protect and serve, but one Rogers County, OK, deputy went above and beyond the call of duty. Corporal Paul Tucker has decided to donate his kidney to save the life of a man he'd never met, reports KJRH.

Nashville, TN, resident Greg Morton, 51, has been on dialysis for two years. Both of his kidneys have failed. Corporal Tucker never met Morton before he agreed to give him his kidney.

"I got the phone call from Vanderbilt and they told me that I wasn't only a match, but that I was around a one in a million match," Corporal Tucker said.

Rogers County Sheriff Major Coy Jenkins is a longtime friend of Morton and says he wasn't able to give his kidney. But by fate, his partner was. Now Morton has another chance.

"I got a brother for life," Corporal Tucker said.

"I'll owe him for the rest of my life," Morton said.

The surgery will take place July 26th in Nashville.
