A Maui Police Department recruit A Maui Police Department recruit is in a coma after passing out during training last week.

Alexa Jacobs’ family said the 27-year-old is currently in a trauma center on Oahu awaiting a liver transplant, HawaiiNewsNow.

A GoFundMe page set up by one of her friends says, "Alexa had a heat stroke while doing her physical day in the police academy and her body temperature was 107 when they brought her in. Although they were able to cool her down, her body and organs began to shut down on her. She is currently in a coma and on dialysis and we will know within the next 24 hours if she needs a liver transplant."

The GoFundMe concludes: "With Maui being as expensive as it is, we are trying to raise money for her family to be able to stay with her throughout this process and pay her bills at the same time. I am not surprised in the least that she has hundreds of people calling, texting, praying and even offering their ORGANS for her! Please help me get our girl and her family through this nightmare and thank you from the bottom of my heart."

At presstime, the GoFundMe had raised a little more than $25,000.
