Boy In Coma Most of His 6 Years Dies

The Associated Press

Spartanburg, South Carolina

A boy who was in a coma for more than six years while a legal battle raged around him has died. But the legal fighting will continue.

Allen A. Ervin was born in July 1985 and had been on life support since December 1985, when his brain was damaged from oxygen deprivation during circumcision.

He died at Spartanburg Regional Medical Center on Wednesday, three weeks before his 7th birthday. Doctors said he suddenly suffered severe heart problems, his mother, Stacey Stroble, said.

The anesthesiologists who attended to Allen during the circumcision settled the case for $435,000 and agreed to lifetime payment of his medical bills.
