Mother of dead teenager backs organ donations

Lily Turley’s son Daryl was 13 when he passed away in 2009, and Lily and her husband Davy made the decision to donate Daryl’s organs.

Today Health Secretary Nicola Sturgeon visited Daryl’s old school, Holy Cross High School in Hamilton, to meet some of his friends and to see teachers in action using the education pack.

Daryl suffered massive head injuries after being hit by a motorbike as he crossed a road near his home. The teenager, who was a fishing fanatic, was treated at the Southern General Hospital in Glasgow, but died.
