11-Year-Old Donates Organs to Save 7 Lives After Tragic Death
A North Carolina family is mourning the death of their 11-year-old son, Noah Chambers.
Chambers tragically died after being struck by driver as he was crossing the street while trick-or-treating.
According to authorities, the boy was attending a truck or treat event at Bethel United Methodist Church in Oak Ridge.
The story is that of an unfortunate event — the driver was not impaired and apparently isn’t facing any charges.
The death of any child is tragic, but according to Noah’s father Robert Chambers, the boy’s organs will be donated to at least seven people.
Noah’s father said the Rockingham County Middle School student wanted to be a doctor when he grew up since he loved to help people. He said, “This pain as a father is the worst pain that I have experienced in my life. Knowing my little boy saved some other child, that helps me push forward knowing Noah is helping people … that is what he was meant for that is what his purpose was.”
Community members dropped off balloons, candy and flowers today to honor the memory of Noah Chambers. The 11-year-old was hit by an SUV Friday while trunk-or-treating and had no brain activity as of Sunday. His organs will be donated to help 7 other children ❤️ @WXII pic.twitter.com/99a3DnY2JC
