21 yr old mother declared brain dead after giving birth to twins, family donates her organs to save 6 lives (+Pic)
Mother declared brain dead: Shao Ziyan gave birth to healthy twin boys two months ago. On Wednesday, April 13, the 21-year-old was declared brain dead by a Zhejiang hospital, China, after a short battle with acute fatty liver of pregnancy (AFLP), a rare complication of pregnancy, for some fifty days.
AFLP is a rare condition that affects 1 in 15,000 pregnancies, and normally occurs in the third trimester.
In a act worthy of emulation, Shao’s family members decided to donate her organs, which have gone on to save four lives and help two people regain their eyesight.
