Family Of 9-Year-Old Boy Who Was Killed By Lightning Donates His Organs To Save Three Kids

The little boy

According to a report by Metro UK, the grieving family of a ‘selfless’ boy killed by a lightning strike have donated his organs in the hope he will be able to save the lives of three other children.

The heartbroken dad of Jordan Banks said he hopes to continue his son’s legacy of ‘kindness’ as he told parents to treasure every moment they have with their children.

The nine-year-old was killed after a freak storm hit while he was playing football on a field in Blackpool on Tuesday evening.

In a post on Facebook, dad Matt Banks told of how Jordan’s organs may help save the lives of three children.

He wrote: ‘Jordan was and is the most amazing little person.

‘He had the biggest heart and would do anything for anyone, and when parents say they have the best kid ever, he [genuinely] was the best ever and if I ever could have asked for a perfect child that was my Jordan.

‘I couldn’t have been prouder of him, always putting other people [before] himself, such a selfless little person.

‘Even now his kindness has meant that three other children may be able to live, as he always told us he wanted to be able to help other people if he could. So [he] was a donor and has donated, which we know will be what he wanted.’

It comes after it was revealed Jordan had raised £3,000 for mental health causes earlier this year by running 30 miles, and left sweets on police cars in lockdown to help cheer officers up.

The Liverpool FC fan was even praised by star James Milner for his fundraising efforts.

The footballer last night dedicated Liverpool’s 4-2 win against Manchester United to Jordan, writing on Twitter: ‘A big win for Jordan.’

The team’s players all wore tops with the number ‘7’ on and Jordan’s name in their warm-up session before the match.

Dad Matt told parents to treat every day with their children as ‘precious’.

He continued: ‘Literally, words can’t even explain how heartbroken I am.

‘Not only have I lost my little boy, I have lost my little best mate. We would sit and talk for hours about his future and he would always ask me what I wanted his children to call me, and we both decided on papi.

‘I never took anything for granted and I always made sure we had quality family time and did whatever I could to show him how much he was loved and how special and beautiful he was.’
