(CNN) — Zachary Reyna, a 12-year-old Florida boy stricken with a brain-eating parasite, has died, according to a post Saturday on a Facebook page that’s been providing detailed updates from the boy’s family.

The post indicated that the LaBelle child died Saturday afternoon.

“The battle is over for Zac but he won the war,” the post concluded.

About an hour later, a new message said that a ventilator was being used so that the boy’s organs could be donated, adding that family and friends can visit him at Miami Children’s Hospital during visiting hours Sunday.

“Even though Zac has passed, he will still be saving many lives,” this new post said.
