BYU Football Coach, Family To Donate 3-Year-Old Daughter’s Organs After Terrible Accident
By FOX NEWS // November 29, 2016
(FOX NEWS) – The family of Brigham Young University running backs coach Reno Mahe said they will donate the organs of their 3-year-old daughter who has been hospitalized since a tragic accident at the family’s home last week.
Elsie Mahe was playing with a friend at the family’s home when a cord from the window blinds somehow became tangled around her neck, Fox 13 reported.
Elsie’s mother, Sunny, found her daughter and began performing CPR before paramedics arrived to transport her to Primary Children’s Hospital in Salt Lake City. It was unclear as to how long she had been without oxygen, and a later MRI showed extensive brain damage. Elsie was intubated and placed on a respirator, but her condition continued to deteriorate, Fox 13 reported.
The family updated followers on a GoFundMe page Sunday and said they had met with the director of the hospital’s organ donation team to discuss how their daughter can help save others.
