The family of a 23-year-old medical student fatally injured in the Formosa Fun Coast
(八仙海岸) inferno last month has decided to donate his organs after he was declared brain dead earlier yesterday, making the young man the fourth fatality in the disaster.
Far Eastern Memorial Hospital determined the man, named Su Chia-sheng (蘇家陞), to be brain dead at about 11am yesterday, after his condition took a sudden turn for the worse on Thursday.
Su, a junior-year dental student at Taipei Medical University (TMU), sustained second and third-degree burns to 73 percent of his body in the blast and ensuing fire on June 27, which injured 491 people and has killed four so far. [FULL STORY]
