Toddler’s parents fight to keep him alive in Roseville hospital

About a month ago, 2-year-old Israel Stinson was rushed to the hospital during an asthma attack. He was transferred from UC Davis to Kaiser Permanente in Roseville. The parents of Israel Stinson are now fighting to keep him alive despite doctors declaring him brain dead.

They recorded a video of what appears to show him flinch when his mother Jonee Fonseca tickles him.

“It’s a natural instinct that tells me he’s still there. He’s very responsive to my voice and my touch, dad’s voice, dad’s touch,” Fonseca said.
