A 13-year-old boy who was said to be brain dead defied odds when he regained consciousness after his parents had signed papers to donate his organs.
Trenton McKinley, of Mobile, Ala., was hospitalized two months ago after a small utility trailer he was in flipped over. “I hit the concrete and the trailer landed on top of my head. After that, I don’t remember anything,” Trenton told FOX10.
Trenton remained brain dead and was barely breathing in the days following the crash. His mother ultimately decided to sign papers to donate Trenton’s organs that would benefit five children who needed transplants.
A day before doctors were going to take Trenton off of life support, the 13-year-old began showing signs of brain activity and movement. Trenton began breathing on his own and woke up speaking full sentences in late March. Trenton said he believes he went to heaven before he came back to life.
