Family of Florida boy with brain infection: God will step in

Posted: Updated:

The family of the Florida boy with the same brain infection as Benton's Kali Hardig now says they are still holding onto hope.

Saturday the family announced on Facebook the amoeba had left 12-year-old Zachary Reyna brain dead.

The Reyna family wrote on Facebook Sunday:

"We respect the doctors protocol but we continue with our faith and believe God will step in on his time irregardless of what has been said. We ask that you continue to pray and believe along with us."

The family had previously posted Zachary was being kept alive by a ventilator so that his organs could be donated. It's unclear whether Zachary is still connected to the ventilator.
