    A teen wounded during the shooting rampage in Kalamazoo, Mich., was declared brain-dead and about to have her organs harvested when she suddenly showed signs of life, according to a new report Monday.

    Abigail Kopf, 14, remained hospitalized in critical condition and “fighting for her life,” ABC News said.

    Michigan State Police Lt. Dale Hinz told ABC that Kopf’s family said Bronson Methodist Hospital was preparing to remove the girl’s organs for donation when she squeezed her distraught mom’s hand.

    Kopf squeezed her mother’s hand again when the mom asked if her daughter could hear her, Hinz said.

    She also gave thumbs-up signs with both hands when a doctor asked her to give him a thumbs-up if she could hear him, Hinz said.
