The family of a 10-year-old who died after being struck by a bullet from celebratory gunfire on New Year's says the girl's organs have been donated.

Aaliyah Destiny Boyer of Manheim, Pa., was taken off life support Thursday the A. I. Dupont Children's Hospital in Wilmington, Del. At least three children received her organs, including one girl at the same hospital who received her heart.

Aaliyah was visiting family in Elkton, Md., and watching a fireworks display when she was struck by a bullet and collapsed. Area residents said numerous gunshots were heard in the area at the start of the new year.
