Photos: 17-Year Old Hayley Okines Trapped In 104-Year-Old Body, Passes Away

Hayley Okines, the courageous 17-year-old from England with a rare and fatal condition that prematurely aged her body nearly eight times faster than normal, passed away Thursday night. Her mother, Kerry, posted the announcement on Facebook: “My baby girl has gone somewhere better. She took her last breath in my arms at 9.39pm x.”

Hayley, who penned the autobiography Old Before My Time at the age of 14 and was known as Britain’s 100-year-old teenager (her body had aged to 104 at the time of her death), suffered from Hutchinson Gilford Progeria Syndrome, also known as HGPS or Progeria.
