Boy born without a brain dies at age 12
SHREVEPORT, LA (PIX11) — A Louisiana boy born without a brain died last week at the age of 12, according to KSLA. Trevor Judge Waltrip was born with a rare condition called hydranencephaly, with sacs filled with cerebrospinal fluid taking the place of his brain's cerebral hemispheres. Trevor had a brain stem that allowed him to breath, have a heartbeat and respond to some stimuli, though he couldn't talk or see.
