#2. 13-Year-Old Wakes Up After Being Declared Brain Dead
After a dune buggy accident, 13-year-old Alabama native Trenton McKinley was pronounced brain dead.
Nevertheless, after being brain dead for days, just as his parents were preparing to donate his organs, the teen miraculously began moving his extremities. It was impressive, but just two months after his near-fatal accident, following three brain surgeries, McKinley is talking, reading, and even walking again.
