A 72 year old woman mowed down the toddler’s stroller and has been suspected of drunk driving.
On Sunday, the fighter toddler was declared brain dead
Kowal announced the death in a heartbreaking Facebook post:
“About an hour ago, our baby was declared brain dead. He tried to fight so hard. He even died at one point but they brought him back. He’s a little fighter. His heart is still beating but his brain is no longer working.
Our hearts are broken and there’s a void in my soul but we will get through this.”
The owner of Southern California’s MMA training studios also posted regarding the family’s decision of donating the little one’s heart.
“This isn’t easy to write but Liam is going to donate his organs, so that his little heart can make another child live and another set of parents not have to go through what we have to.
It hurts to write this but Liam loved to share and the person we were going to raise him to be would love to help someone else.”
He also asked his followers to inform if anyone comes to know a child in need.
Child’s aunt was also hospitalized with serious injuries.
She got arrested on felony drunk-driving charges.
The teenage was suffering from leg injuries when the little Liam was still in his stroller. According to the police, he was not breathing and had no pulse. Officers gave him CPR and rushed to the hospital with internal injuries.
A business associate and friend of Kowal’s set up a GoFundMe page in order to help pay for medical and funeral expenses.
“As anyone can imagine, they are completely shocked, heartbroken, and have a long road ahead of them. No parent should EVER have to bury their child.”
