SPRINGFIELD, Ohio (AP) - An Ohio mother donated the organs of the 18-month-old daughter she lost in a Thanksgiving Day car crash, the Springfield News-Sun reported Monday.

Ciera Jones said that her toddler, Camiyah Carty, is a hero because of the lives being saved as a result of her death.

The girl was killed when a vehicle that her mother was driving home from a Thanksgiving dinner had slowed down due to a flat tire and was struck by another vehicle.

Jones said her daughter’s heart, kidneys and liver were donated and used to save the lives of three children and an adult woman. Camiyah’s other body parts were donated to research and science.
