Organ donation in the news

Today, on our local channel 4 there was a story about organ donation.
Story (with video) here:
It's too bad the reporters facts are a little skewed. He states that there are 100,000 people waiting for organs. Yes, ALMOST. But I think being accurate might have been better. As of today, OPTN shows 95,225 (11:57 pm EST). In the article and video it states "As Ingram tags along, he said he was reminded that someone must die so that someone else can live." This is an unfortunate statement. Kidneys, livers for sure. And I have heard that partial lung transplants can be performed from live donors.

Maybe I need to check my facts too?

On MSNBC, there was a story about a kidney donation too.
