Hilda Cabrales, who was left unconscious outside a hospital in Los Angeles two hours after her friend and model Christy Giles' dead body was dumped outside a different hospital in the area, has been declared brain dead.
Her father confirmed the news to The Sun; it is just days before her 27th birthday.
She was an interior designer who had just moved to Los Angeles from Mexico in July to take a job as project manager for a design company. She graduated cum laude as an architect from Monterrey University two years ago.
Cabrales and Giles went out on Friday, November 13, for a 'very normal' night with a third friend who wishes to remain anonymous.

The next day, after not replying to text messages for nearly 12 hours, Giles' dead body was left on the sidewalk by men in balaclavas driving a black Prius with no plates at Southern California Hospital in Culver City at 5 pm on November 14.
Surveillance footage recorded the men dumping Cabrales' unconscious body outside Kaiser Permanente hospital in West LA two hours later.
Cabrales' parents immediately flew from Mexico to be by their daughters' side when they learned of the tragedy. Her heartbroken father, Luis Cabrales Rivera, told The Sun that doctors confirmed yesterday that his daughter would not wake up from her coma.
Through tears, Rivera said: 'My girl was diagnosed brain dead yesterday. We were already expecting it to be bad news and we're trying to take it with a lot of strength.
'I asked God to return Hilda to me in 100% good health but if she was going to be left impaired it is better for her to leave and go by His side.'
Her organs will be donated as her family expect their 'generous girl' would have wanted. 'Her mother and I have decided that her organs should be donated to those who need them and that process will take place on Sunday or Monday,' her father added.
'I never discussed it with her but we are completely sure Hilda would have wanted it to be this way, she was such a good and generous girl who was always looking out for others.
'Apparently there are nine to 12 different organs that could be used for donations and we decided that should be the last act of love from my daughter.'

An outpouring of love for Cabrales and Giles flooded social media when news of their tragedy broke.
'We're all devastated but grateful that God let us have her with us for almost 27 years and allowed us to come here and say goodbye to her. I'm grateful that with her last breath she will be able to give life to others and that she will live on in the heart, eyes, lungs, of someone else.'
Family and friends expect to celebrate her life on Sunday or Monday- what would have been her 27th birthday.
'They will take her down to the operating room on Sunday or Monday but before that, they will let us say goodbye and pay homage to her, Rivera explained. We will be allowed to say a few words and play music and if it is on Monday we will sing Happy Birthday to her.'
It had previously been reported that both Giles and and Cabarles were found with heroin in their system- a drug friends and family swear neither girl would have taken voluntarily.
Rivera explained: 'Hilda told me that she would sometimes smoke marijuana to help her to get to sleep but the drugs that were found in her system were not drugs she would have taken herself.'
'Her mother is a doctor, her stepfather is a doctor and they have always told her that she should not take opioids because they could cause irreparable damage or cardiac arrest.'
Giles husband Jan Cilliers, who was in San Francisco at the time, says he awoke in the morning to check his wife's location on his phone and saw she was somewhere he didn't recognize
