Two scientists have had their two-year-old girl from Thailand by the name of Matheryn Naovaratpong cryogenically frozen in the hope that she can be saved by future medical advances, Motherboard.vice.com reported.
The child, whose frozen body will be preserved in a cooling unit in Arizona by the company Alcor, had 12 brain operations and dozens of chemotherapy treatments before she died of ependymoblastoma.
AdvertisementCompany representatives moved the child to an 'ice bed' at the moment of death to ensure her body is perfectly preserved and her parents chose to have her body frozen in liquid nitrogen in the hope that she can be brought back by future medical technologies.
Sahatorn Naovaratpong said that they realized it was the end and had to prepare to say goodbye, adding that her body has been cryopreserved in Arizona awaiting coming technology.
