Peru Teen Declared “Brain-Dead” Days after being Pinned Under Car

Posted by wlpo on May 31, 2016

If you’ve been following the story of a teen who was pinned under a car last week near Peru, there is unfortunate news to report.

The Peoria Coroner’s office has reported that the boy had been declared brain-dead early Sunday morning, but was being kept on life support for organ donation. Sixteen-year old Gavin Freeman was working on the car along a county road in Peru when, according to police, the car rolled off of a jack and pinned him underneath.

Freeman suffered head and chest injuries in the accident. He had to be flown to OSF St. Francis Medical Center in Peoria.
