    A young girl’s case drew national attention and fueled debate as a fierce court battle unfolded between devastated family members fighting to keep her on a ventilator and doctors arguing she'd already died. Family members say the eighth-grader was alert and talking after doctors removed her tonsils, adenoids and extra sinus tissue in a surgery. The young girl went through the surgery fine and was awake, alert and talking. Not long after the surgery, the young girl began bleeding profusely, went into cardiac arrest, and is now brain dead. How does the Prudent Person Rule apply in this case?
