  • OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — A California judge has ordered a 13-year-old girl declared brain dead to be kept on life support until Jan. 7.

    Alameda County Superior Court Judge Evelio Grillo on Monday ordered Children’s Hospital Oakland to maintain Jahi McMath on a ventilator past a 5 p.m. time set in a previous ruling.

    The family wants to continue life support, saying there is hope for recovery.

    Doctors at Children’s Hospital and an independent pediatric neurologist from Stanford University have concluded the girl is brain dead.
