She could have died from the accident and her parents decided to save her illegally instead of her dying. This was the best decision for Matthew and Clair Fox to make for their daughter.

They basically recreated a human using biogel. This has never been done before until Jenna. They took part of her brain and stored it in a hard drive. They then took it Calzone 3

and put it as a microchip and inserted it into her head. This could lead to many possibilities in the future of science. They can almost program humans to do whatever they want. It could possibly lead to the perfect super race,...
