‘Miracle’ Boy, 13, Who Was Brain Dead for Days Wakes After Parents Sign Organ Donation Papers

Trenton McKinley defied all odds.

After the 13-year-old boy was severely injured in a dune buggy accident, his parents made the difficult decision to donate his organs following days of him being brain dead, according to Fox 10. But after the papers were signed, he miraculously regained consciousness.

The incident happened two months ago, when McKinley was playing at a friend’s house in Alabama. While the teen was riding in a small utility trailer being pulled by a dune buggy, his friend suddenly hit the brakes and caused the trailer to flip.

“I hit the concrete and the trailer landed on top of my head,” recalled McKinley, speaking to Fox 10. “After that, I don’t remember anything.”

His mother, Jennifer Reindl, told the outlet that her son had been dead for 15 minutes when she arrived at USA Medical Center in Mobile.

“All I saw was a stretcher with his feet hanging out. He was dead a total of 15 minutes,” she said, adding that doctors prepared her for the worst. “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.”

After days of being brain dead, McKinley’s parents decided to donate his organs to five children in need that were a match for the teen.

“They said the next time his heart stopped they had to let him die….this was a ….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 on a Facebook page set up to help raise funds for his recovery. “His eyes were solid black and dry and I knew he would not hesitate to save 5 more lives.”

She continued, “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…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.”

However, McKinley began showing signs of brain activity just one day before doctors were set to take him off life support.

McKinley suffered multiple skull fractures as well as kidney failure “due to the lack of oxygen after his cardiac arrest,” according to the Facebook page. Fox 10 reported that he continues to suffer from nerve pain and seizures every day, but he’s keeping a positive attitude.

“I said I could turn sideways and put salsa in there and eat chips and dip out of my head,” he joked to Fox 10. “No more washing dishes for me!”

He’s had three brain surgeries and continues to make progress as he recovers at home. A video posted to Facebook showed McKinley sinking a basketball into a hoop at rehab last month, while another showed him taking a stroll with the help of a walker.

McKinley told Fox 10 that he feels he was in heaven while he was unconscious.

“I was in an open field walking straight,” he explained. “There’s no other explanation but God. There’s no other way. Even doctors said it.”

Investindustrial’s Andrea C. Bonomi Included in ‘Paradise Papers’ List

MILAN — Financier Andrea C. Bonomi is among the latest names to be included in the Paradise Papers, according to a report released by Italy’s weekly L’Espresso on Sunday.
Born in New York but hailing from one of the most renowned Milanese families, Bonomi is the founder of the Luxembourg-based Investindustrial investment house, which took control of the Sergio Rossi firm from Kering in 2015 and has stakes in Aston Martin, Perfume Holding, B&B Italia and luxury lighting firm Flos, among others.
In its article, L’Espresso reveals that Investindustrial is controlled by three trusts based in the Channel Islands of Jersey. Established in 1987 by Bonomi’s father Carlo Campanini Bonomi, the three structures are named The George Trust, The Budda Trust and The 1987 Settlement Trust.
The trusts control Investindustrial through three other companies — named Grosvenor Street Holdings SA, De Combinatae NV and Zafrikidis Oil & Ship Ltd., — which also remained unidentified until now.
The disclosure of this complex organization and Bonomi’s inclusion in the Paradise Papers list are a consequence of a specific episode dating back to last year.
In January 2016, the Milanese family requested bank financing for the acquisition of a Dassault Falcon 900DX jet, priced at $ 13.5 million, from a

Stormfront (Book 40 of “The Promise Papers”)


Zach wasn’t happy when pretty Amy suddenly arrived on his remote doorstep. What on earth was he supposed to do with her? But she couldn’t go back home…so against his better judgment, he agreed to let her stay ‘just for a few days.’He managed to keep his hands off her until a deadly tornado struck, destroying his cozy cabin…and his inhibitions~ ~ ~ ~ ~ Excerpt ~ ~ ~ ~ ~”Storm’s coming, Zach.” Amy glanced over her shoulder, then pointed out the kitchen window when he came to stand behind her. “Big one, too, I think.”Zach frowned up at the turbulent sky. An hour ago, it had been clear to the horizon, but now angry clouds were boiling up like a tidal wave. This was the season for bad storms, and he didn’t like the sickly greenish cast overhead.”Go downstairs,” he ordered, and pointed to the heavy trapdoor that led down into his chilly storm cellar. “I’m going outside for a better look. Better safe than sorry,” he added when she turned worried eyes in his direction. “It’ll likely blow south of here, but I’ll feel better knowing you’re underground.”Obediently she lit the oil lantern, then watched as he tossed a thick rope over the rafter, tied a boathook to the end, and used that to hoist the big door open. His muscles bulged in the dimming light. There was plenty of food stored down in the cellar; the earthy scents rose in a tantalizing wave as she carefully descended the roughhewn wooden steps, and hung her lantern on a sturdy peg jutting from the wall. “Be careful, Zach!” she called back up, and settled down to wait. She heard him leave, and the door slammed behind him. Then, sooner than she’d expected, he came running back, and his heavy footsteps beat a rapid tattoo over her head. Startled, she began climbing the steps again…and nearly lost her footing when something sailed past her head and crashed to the dirt floor below. “Zach, what’s going on? Is everything okay?”Get back down there!” he bellowed, and hurled something else past her. “Now, Amy! Take cover!”What?”P
