According to KTRK-TV, the parents of a teen who died filed a Pennsylvania wrongful death suit against doctors at Hamot Medical Center and a representative at the Center for Organ Recovery and Education.
An 18-year-old suffered a brain injury while snowboarding on a school-sponsored ski trip in March 2007 and later died at the Hamot Medical Center.
The parents stated their son was not officially declared brain dead when doctors began procedures to have some of his organs transplanted. The parents are seeking $5 million in damages in the Pennsylvania wrongful death suit.
