Family Fights for Son's Life
A battle for the life of a fourteen year-old boy:
The family of a 14-year-old who was shot in the neck has received a restraining order preventing the University of Kansas Hospital from taking the boy off of life support.
Michael Todd of Kansas City was shot Tuesday at a Blue Springs apartment. Police said a witness told them that the gun might have gone off accidentally.
"Our doctors have determined him to be brain dead," hospital spokesman Dennis McCulloch said on Friday.
But Michael's family argues that the hospital wants to remove the boy from life support because it wants to use his organs for a donor program.
"It's so quick," said Odette Cole, Todd's aunt. "He's 14 years old. ... You're acting like you're in a grocery store for body parts."
I've received information from a third party suggesting that Michael's mother feels that he is showing signs of increased brain activity. The situation is desperate and one for prayer. I'll keep you informed as more information is provided.
