Parents of brain dead girl donate her organs to help others

THE parents of a 16-year-old girl from Kulai, Johor, have decided to donate her organs after she was confirmed to be brain dead, reported China Press.

The father of Huang Hui Yi said a medical team from Kuala Lumpur harvested her daughter's heart, lungs, kidneys, liver and bones in an operation at the Johor Baru General Hospital on Friday.

The father, known only as Huang, said he hoped that their daughter's organs would be used for those in critical need.

"We decided to donate her organs to help others although my daughter had never pledged to donate," he said.

Hui Yi was rushed to a private hospital in Johor after falling into a coma and was later confirmed to be brain dead.
