Two years ago, the teen was airlifted to Hamot Medical Center in Pennsylvania. The teens parents' lawsuit claims doctors and a representative of The Center Organ Recovery & Education (CORE) prematurely caused the teen's death by administering medication and by removing his breathing tube. Michael and Teresa Jacobs believe that Gregory had not been formally declared brain dead prior to surgeons beginning to harvest his organs.
Hamot and CORE deny any wrongdoing. Hamot claims that proper consent was received in order for his organs to be donated and all protocols were followed.
