— The mother of a young man who died after suffering brain damage when his mother, who had no experience with the market, tried to sell him coupons online said she has no choice except to buy the man’s organs.
A Florida man who was rushed to a hospital and later died in hospital has been identified as 25-year-old Jordan Davis.
The man’s mother told investigators that she did not know about the coupons she was selling, said Lt.
Mike Giannini of the Florida Department of Law Enforcement.
She had tried to buy organs from her son and had not known that the man had a medical condition, he said.
Jordan Davis’ organs are expected to be donated to an organization that provides organ donations.
Giannini said he doesn’t know if Davis’ mother knew about the coupon site or if she knew about organ donation.
“It’s pretty hard to say whether she knew that Jordan was going to donate his organs, if she did, and if she didn’t,” Gianninisaid.
Davis was taken to Florida’s Scott Memorial Hospital for treatment of brain damage.
He was pronounced dead on March 25.
He was one of two men killed in a mass shooting at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando, Florida, last year.
Police said the woman who tried to help Davis was shot in the head.
Florida law enforcement officials did not immediately return messages seeking comment.
