Sorry, I'm not at all good at making things clicky. Anyway its about a teen who was declared brain-dead by 4 doctors. They wanted to harvest organs but parents called in yet another doctor. The teen survived.
I've seen a few stories like this over the years and it really makes me question organ donation.....

These cases are rare, that's why they're news. It's unfortunate that it happened, and thank goodness for a happy ending. But it also creates doubts for the very important organ donation process. More people need to consider organ donation, not doubt it. When my cousin was killed by a drunk driver 21 yrs ago, my aunt's last selfless act on his behalf was making sure others waiting on the donor list got their happy ending! :)
