Following the incident, Park fell into a coma and was later declared brain dead, according to AllKpop.

The family decided to donate Park's organs to honor the late actress.

"Only her brain is unconscious, and her heart is still beating. There must be someone who desperately needs [organs]. As her mother and father, we will be able to live comforted [by the thought that her heart] has gone to someone and is beating," her mother said in a statement obtained by Soompi.
