On Thursday, January 28, Daniel Morgan from the English city of Birmingham complained of an intense headache during the night. He was used to the pain because he had been suffering from migraine attacks for years.

Somehow, Daniel's girlfriend, Evie Bradburn, felt that this time, it was much more serious than usual. "He insisted he was okay but Evie still went to wake Lisa, his mom," Daniel's cousin Alexandra Webb (25) recalled in an interview with Birmingham Live.

By the time his mother got to her son's room, he was unconscious. "They got him into the recovery position and called for an ambulance," Alexandra continued.

The teen was admitted to the intensive care unit and was put on life support. Daniel, who wanted to become a police officer, had suffered a hemorrhage in the brain.

On Friday, January 29, the family received a sad call from the hospital, with the attending doctor saying there was no more brain activity.

At 12:30 PM, the young man was pronounced dead.

Daniel Morgan donated his organs

As the 19-year-old had an organ donor card, various organs were removed from his body during an operation afterwards. "He would have wanted this. He wanted to help people," his cousin said.

"He was everyone's favorite person. He was so calm and gentle. He lived life to the full and he really, really loved Evie."

On Facebook, Alexandra shared an emotional post, adding a photo of herself and Daniel from happy days and thanking friends for their love and messages.

"Right now we just need each other. You know us, our family are strong together," she wrote.
