Another "Terri"

Another "Terri"
An emergency hearing was held at a Bronx hospital Friday night
after the
family of a brain-dead boy alleged that the hospital had
threatened to remove
him from life support against their wishes. The unusual
hearing came after
relatives of Teron Francis, 13, obtained a court order
prohibiting Montefiore
Medical Center from disconnecting his
respirator.

About two dozen relatives stood outside the hospital,
prevented by police
from attending the closed hearing. A hospital spokesman
said the hearing was
being held in a small conference room, with only the
judge, attorneys, doctors,
the boy's mother, Marcerlyn Francis, and a
stenographer in attendance.

Shortly after midnight the judge told
about two dozen of the relatives
assembled in the lobby that the hospital
would not remove the boy from the
respirator. He also told them that he
would order an investigation into what
happened to
Teron."....

"The hospital wants to cut him off now, even though we
got a show cause
order to continue his life support," Genis said before
going into the 10:15 p.m.
hearing....

As for the
possibility of taking Teron off the respirator, Osborne
said: "It's
better to do it sooner than later because of the boy's condition.
When
you're brain dead, your organs just fade away slowly.


"Teron's complications began Monday after he was taken to
Bronx-Lebanon
Hospital complaining of a severe headache and toothache. The
family said doctors
conducted a CAT-scan and told relatives that an
infection had spread to his
brain.

After he went into
convulsions and became unconscious, Teron was hooked up
to a respirator and
transferred to Montefiore for surgery on Tuesday, his family
said.
"Something went terribly wrong because my brother was always conscious in
the hospital," said Teron's brother, Erron Francis, 24. "On Wednesday, they
were
calling us asking us about donating organs." (Story.....)




""It's better to do it sooner than later because of the boy's condition. When
you're brain dead, your organs just fade away slowly."" ~~Sounds Like an ORGAN HARVESTNG SCHEME!!!!~~

I would Like to ask, IS He REALLY BRAIN DEAD? If he is on a respirator and his heart is beating, then he would not be considered Brain Dead!? Unfortuneatly there are more questions then answers from this article. Going to the original article doesnt answer a lot of questions either.

Original

.......Teron, a seventh-grader at Community School 4, was taken to Bronx-Lebanon Hospital Center on Monday complaining of a severe headache and toothache. The family said doctors conducted a CAT-scan and told relatives that an infection had spread to his brain.

After Teron went into convulsions and became unconscious, he was hooked up to a respirator and transferred to Montefiore for surgery on Tuesday, his family said.

On Wednesday, doctors told relatives he was brain dead.

On Thursday, Douglas said, a doctor at Montefiore told the family that New York State law empowers physicians to remove respirators from brain-dead patients after 24 hours. That's when Marcerlyn Francis, who did not consent to that move, contacted a lawyer.

The hospital disputes the family's account.

"I'm saying, unequivocally, we never ever intended to take Teron Francis off the ventilator," spokesman Steve Osborne said again yesterday. "That is not our policy. We just don't do that."
