Teron taken off respirator, heart stops

New York Daily News - City News - Teron taken off respirator, heart stops

I missed this one. Teron Francis' Family after getting a second opinion has agreed to remove Life support. His heart stopped on April 28th.

"Montefiore's medical director, Gary Kalkut, said Teron's kidneys already have begun to fail and his body has swollen "and taken on an unnatural appearance."

The mechanical ventilator for Teron Francis was turned off at the request of his family shortly before 5 p.m., Montefiore Children's Hospital spokeswoman Pamela Adkins said. The boy's heart and other organs stopped by 5:05 p.m.
