Organ donation in Tucson tragedy

9-year-old shooting victim's organs help save child

"Christina-Taylor Green, the 9-year-old girl killed in Saturday's shootings in Tucson, donated her organs.

"She was one of six people killed in the shooting that targeted U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords outside a Safeway store northwest of Tucson. Giffords remains in critical condition.
"And a friend helping the Green family said they received a call yesterday from the organ donation network, telling them that Christina-Taylor's donation had already saved the life of a child on the East Coast."
