BUFFALO, NY (WKBW) - Teddy bears now watch over the burned out shell of a home where 3-year-old Malachi Norman lived with his family.

Buffalo firefighters saved the boy, pulling him and his mother from the burning rubble early Friday morning.

23-year-old Lequeisha Watkins died later that day at ECMC. Milachi was declared brain dead at Women and Children's Hospital over the weekend.

But right now, it is possible that seven other young children were given a second chance at life all because Malachi's family donated his organs.
