‘Miracle’ Child Comes to Life After Parents Sign Organ Donation Papers

Trenton-McKinley

(USA Today) – Jennifer Nicole Reindl has a simple explanation for her young son’s recovery from the brink of death due to severe brain injuries.

“It’s a miracle,” Reindl tells USA TODAY, citing her belief that the hand of God is behind it all. Trenton McKinley, 13, from Mobile, Ala., was so close to death after the brain trauma from a freak utility vehicle accident that his parents signed papers to donate his organs to five separate children needing transplants.

But the day before doctors were set to pull the plug on his life support systems in March, Trenton started showing signs of mental cognition, according to WALA, a FOX affiliate in Alabama. Trenton now says he went to heaven before he was brought back to Earth. CONTINUE
