FRESNO, Calif. -- A 12-year-old boy declared brain dead by doctors after a boating accident died on Monday while still on life support.

Jonah Panduro had been in a medically induced coma for a week. He was inner tubing on Lake Kaweah last Sunday when a metal loop snapped off the tube and became lodged in his head.

The boy's family had been fighting to keep him on life support, even though the doctors had pronounced him brain dead.

According to members of the family, Jonah was still on life support when he passed away.
