California toddler declared brain dead moved to new hospital

A California toddler whose family waged a court battle to keep him on life support after he was declared brain dead has been transferred to another hospital.

Kevin Snider, an attorney for the family of 2-year-old Israel Stinson, said Monday the boy was admitted to another facility.

He declined to release the name of the hospital, citing the family's privacy.

Israel's mother, Jonee Fonseca, had been looking to move Israel out of Kaiser Permanente Medical Center in Roseville, where doctors said he was brain dead and his condition wouldn't improve.

Fonseca said he has moved his body in response to her touch and voice.

A federal appeals court Friday granted Fonseca's request to keep Israel on life support.
