More Brain Death Disputes - Michael Lavecchia III

13-year-old Michael Lavecchia III was pronounced brain dead at 11:55 a.m. Sunday at St. Joseph's Regional Medical Center (Paterson,  NJ) after his car slammed into the back of a Mack truck.  

But Michael's mother, Laureen, said that she still wants treatment for her son. Interestingly, Laureen initially consented to organ donation.  But then the family had the death certificate "destroyed."

As widely predicted, U.S. hospitals may be seeing more of these conflicts.
