“Brain death” apparently not so dead as some would like

A 14-year-old girl wounded in a deadly shooting spree in Michigan this
weekend was initially pronounced brain dead at the hospital before she
squeezed her mother's hand and was rushed to surgery, her family told
authorities.

She is now in critical condition and "fighting for her life," her family said.
The teen, who was shot in a Kalamazoo Cracker Barrel parking lot
Saturday, was pronounced brain dead shortly after arriving at Bronson
Methodist Hospital, Michigan State Police Lt. Dale Hinz told ABC News
today. 

Her family told the lieutenant that an hour or two later, the hospital
was in the process of preparing her organs for donation when the girl
squeezed her mother’s hand, he said.
