Alabama resident Trenton McKinley is in good health after surviving brain injuries one day before his parents could remove him from life support and had signed to donate his organs
A 13-year-old boy from Mobile, Alabama has been hailed as a 'miracle child' after he survived terrible brain trauma injuries involving a dune buggy. With no hopes left the parents had signed to donate his organs.
Trenton McKinley who was at a friend's house two months ago playing in a small trailer pulled by a dune buggy for kids. According to Trenton, his friend pressed the breaks suddenly causing the trailer to flip. He quickly threw his 4-year niece on the grass and meanwhile he was caught up in the flipping trailer. "I hit the concrete and the trailer landed on top of my head. After that, I don't remember anything" told FOX10
"Five kids needed organs that matched him,” said Reindl. “It was unfair to keep bringing him back because it was just damaging his organs even more."
Although the progress in his health is potential, Trenton is recovering but his struggle is real. He has lost 50 pounds and deals with severe pain and seizures daily. But, the kid has got a great sense of humor.
The boy has gone through three serious brain surgeries and has a long road ahead with a lot of medical expenses to go. Currently, he only has half of his skull and the other half is frozen in the hospital. He will soon have a surgery to reconnect the remaining.
