DULUTH - A Duluth teenager went into surgery one last time on Saturday.
Everett Bergren, 14, was critically injured when his grandmother’s car was struck by a drunk driver, nearly a year ago.
Since the accident, he had made enough progress to even attend school.
But his health suddenly worsened after a planned skull-plate surgery, Thursday morning.
Initially, doctors thought the surgery went well, but he later suffered a brain hemorrhage from complications from the surgery and was pronounced brain-dead and had been put on life support.
"He was a survivor. He wanted to work for the DNR. He loved the outdoors," Bergrens aunt, Shelley Nicholson said.
He received his final surgery Saturday to donate his organs and his family said they wish to bring awareness to drunk-driving and organ donations.
Tune in on Sunday as we bring you the complete story of Bergren’s journey.
