Heartbreaking and inspiring at the same time.

Woman's tragic death in Michigan hospital witnessed by family in Iran on laptop

A nurse in a Michigan hospital kissed the patient's forehead. More than 6,000 miles away, Sanaz Nezami's family in Iran watched on a laptop computer and wept.

Nezami, a vibrant 27-year-old woman who could speak three languages, wanted to pursue an advanced degree in engineering at Michigan Technological University. Instead, she was brain dead just a few weeks after unpacking her bags, the victim of a fatal beating by her new husband, according to police.

Technology allowed family in Iran to watch her final hours. The family's faith in the hospital staff led to consent for an extraordinary donation: Nezami's heart, lungs and other life-saving organs were transplanted to seven people in the U.S., a remarkable gift that occurs in less than 1% of all cases.

"We wanted God to perform a miracle and bring Sanaz back to life," her sister, Sara Nezami, said in a phone interview from Tehran. "But this is a miracle. Sanaz gave her life in order to give life."

A nurse who took care of Sanaz Nezami said the experience was "eye-opening" for hospital staff.

"The family was willing to trust us to know she wasn't coming back," Kim Grutt said.

In August, Nezami married Nima Nassiri in Turkey and lived with him temporarily in the Los Angeles area, where he was born and raised. Her sister said the two met over the Internet.

Nezami, a native of Tehran, had a bachelor's degree in engineering and a master's in French translation. She wanted a doctorate degree in environmental engineering.

The newlyweds drove from California and found a rental home in November in Michigan. Nezami stayed in touch with family through e-mail, text messages and video.

On Dec. 7, she asked her sister to proofread some English-to-Persian translation she was doing on the side.

"I was shocked," Sara Nezami said. "Sanaz was a very precise girl, but she omitted some lines. I asked, 'Are you OK?' She told me there was no problem."

The next day, Sanaz Nezami was rushed to a hospital with severe head injuries and was transferred to Marquette General Hospital. Police believe she was assaulted by her husband, who has been charged with second-degree murder. His attorney, David Gemignani, declined to comment.

"Her brain was so swollen and so damaged, there was no longer any blood flow," explained Gail Brandly, who supervises nurses at the hospital.

No one knew anything about Nezami, so Brandly ran her name through Google. Suddenly, the stranger who couldn't speak for herself came alive through a r

Great story, I'm glad they shared it with anyone willing to read it. There are a lot of messages in there, but the most prevalent to me was that borders can't hold back compassion.

Well said, Given the chance, a lot of people will be like that. We are more alike that different, after all.

Tough judges? Didn't some kid get away with killing 4 people while DUI?

 

A little odd to see you hoping someone gets raped. Two wrongs don't make a right.

You know better than that. That was Texas, this is Michigan. Separate states, different judiciaries. Ours is particularly tough on DUI and cases like this, even the "liberal" judges. Here that kid would have been up for Murder 2 as well.

Sorry, but I believe in what goes around comes around. Prison life is harsh on baby and wife killers like this worm. Just hoping for the usual. Tell me he doesn't deserve it, or worse?

Nope I don't believe people deserve to be raped. He gets whatever his punishment is for the crime.

Like it or not his fellow prisoners WILL exact a price for his crime the system won't. Even the prisoners have standards, with many having sisters & moms so it's usually open season on these creeps. All I'm doing is prepare the popcorn.

You're both right from where you stand, Doc and Flinty

But in fairness I'd want his pain of serving time to be unpleasant too, life is a gift, too many take it for granted and  think they can do what they want, take what they want whenever and wherever they want

A metaphor for the grin I'll have when the news story is printed about his ultimate prison fate. Same one I had when Dhamer bit the dust.
