The organs of a five-year-old Benzie County boy will give several other children a second chance at life.

The boy's family decided to donate his organs, so other kids could survive.

Five-year-old Fisher Simon passed away Saturday after car accident last week.

The crash happened at the corner of US 31 and Reynolds road in Interlochen.

The sheriff says the car Fisher and his mother were in was rear-ended by another driver.

The driver told the sheriff he was blinded by the sun and never saw their car.

Fisher was sent to the hospital in critical condition and died a few days later.

At the age of five… Fisher Simon's uncle, Rhyan Glezman says he enjoyed helping others and giving back to the community.

That's why his family has now decided to donate his organs. Continue reading
