WICHITA, Kan. –
The family of 15-month old Pressley Bartonek says she passed away on Wednesday. The girl was shocked on May 12, when she grabbed a guard rail at a carnival, at Towne West.
Family issued a statement through Wesley Friday morning.
“Our Pressley passed away on Wednesday afternoon. We have made the difficult decision to donate her organs so that other patients in need of transplants no longer have to suffer through their illnesses and that her death was not in vain. We request that you respect our privacy during this difficult time.”
There has not been an official explanation for why the guard rail had power running through it.
