Accident Victim Kiran Moguel Taken Off Life Support

Kiran Moguel

At two-fifteen today, eight year old Kiran Moguel was taken off life support at the K.H.M.H. and pronounced dead. The student from Orange Walk sustained massive head and body injuries in a traffic accident on Monday in Chetumal. He and his mother, Esther Moguel, were in the pan of a pickup being driven by Zacharias Copo when another vehicle, driven by Chetumal resident Norma Canto slammed into them. Both mother and son were flung out of the vehicle and both received serious injuries. Doctors in Chetumal performed surgery on the child on Tuesday morning, and all seemed well, but on Tuesday afternoon he took a turn for the worst and was pronounced brain dead. He was transported to the K.H.M.H. where doctors there confirmed the diagnosis. Since then the child has been comatose, and at two-fifteen this afternoon, after his mother said her final goodbye, Kiran was taken off life support.
