Yating was suffering from myasthenia since last summer and had been in a coma for 57 days due to a cerebral injury. After her parents were told by doctors that it was almost impossible for the 11-year-old to wake up again, they decided to donate the girl's heart, kidneys, liver and corneas in a bid to help those in need. Doctors stood in silence and paid tribute to the girl's remains before the operation. Her organs will reportedly save six people.
