Trenton McKinley, 13, was riding in a small trailer being pulled behind a dune buggy when he had an accident.
“I hit the concrete and the trailer landed on top of my head. After that, I don’t remember anything,” Trenton told Fox 10.
The teen was rushed to the hospital where doctors counted seven skull fractures.
His mother, Jennifer Reindl told Fox 10. “All I saw was a stretcher with his feet hanging out. He was dead a total of 15 minutes. 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.”
“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,” Reindl wrote in a Facebook post. “His eyes were solid black and dry and I knew he would not hesitate to save 5 more lives.”
The day of the miracle
One day before his doctors were to pull the plug on his life support, a miracle happened. Trenton began to show signs of brain activity.
“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,” Reindl continued in the 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.”
According to Fox 10 Trenton believes he went to Heaven.
“I was in an open field walking straight,” Trenton said. “There’s no other explanation but God. There’s no other way. Even doctors said it.”
