CWN Editor's Note: An Alabama boy has regained consciousness after his parents had signed authorization to donate his organs, because he had been classified as “brain dead.” 13-year-old Trenton McKinley began showing his first signs of consciousness when doctors prepared to turn off life-support systems. Weeks later, he is now recovering from severe brain trauma.
