  • Brain-dead Vacaville toddler leaves U.S. for treatment, attorney says

    Israel Stinson, a 2-year-old declared brain dead by three Sacramento-area physicians, was airlifted to an undisclosed country for treatment on May 21, 2016.

Attorney Kevin Snider, of the Pacific Justice Institute, said the family's court case over the boy's brain death diagnosis may not be over.
