Jordan saves others


A NINE-YEAR-OLD boy who died after being struck by lightning has helped three other children by organ donation, his father said.

Jordan Banks, from Blackpool, died after being seriously injured on a playing field just after 5pm on Tuesday. In a message widely shared on Facebook, his father Matt described the young footballer as “the most amazing little person” with “the biggest heart” and said he had become an organ donor following his death.
