Brain-dead teen is being called the “miracle in Mobile.” He got in a dune buggy accident and sustained severe head damage.
And he remained brain dead for several days.
Trenton was just 13 years old when he got into a severe accident.
When the accident occurred, he was riding in a small trailer being pulled behind a dune buggy. Trenton’s friend, who was driving the buggy, quickly applied the brakes, causing the trailer to flip over.
His four-year-old niece was in danger, so he grabbed her and made sure she got out. However, when the trailer descended, he was stuck by it.
“I hit the concrete and the trailer landed on top of my head. After that, I don’t remember anything,” Trenton told Fox 10.
“All I saw was a stretcher with his feet hanging out. He was dead a total of 15 minutes,” his mother, Jennifer Reindl told Fox 10. “When he came back, they said he would never be normal again. They told me the oxidation problems would be so bad to his brain, that he would be a vegetable if he even made it.”
Brain-dead Teen Comes Back to Life
“Five kids needed organs that matched him,” Jennifer said. “It was unfair to keep bringing him back, because it was just damaging his organs even more.”
Jennifer, left with nothing to do, finally came up with a decision.
“They said the next time his heart stopped they had to let him die. This was a Saturday or I could sign a paper to donate his organs to save five other kids and they would keep hitting him with adrenaline till Monday. So, I signed it,” Jennifer wrote in a Facebook post.READ ALSO: WOMAN FORGIVES THE ABUSER AND KNOWS THAT HE, TOO, HAS GIVEN HIS LIFE TO CHRIST
“His eyes were solid black and dry and I knew he would not hesitate to save 5 more lives,” she said.
But something unexpected happened– something that only God could do.
“The next day I got a call. They canceled the final brain wave test right before they hooked him up his hand moved. Then his feet,” she continued in a Facebook post. “So they looked at his eyes and they were back. He had blue eyes. Now they are green with small white specks like glitter. They say when you look upon God … pigment changes … and my baby was in Heaven for a whole day … he is a miracle.”
Trenton woke up with different eye color, and he was recovering! Trenton believed he went to heaven.
“I was in an open field walking straight,” Trenton recalled. “There’s no other explanation but God. There’s no other way.”
Indeed, there is nothing too hard and impossible for God!
“I am the LORD, the God of all the peoples of the world. Is anything too hard for me?” (Jeremiah 32:27, NLT)
