Jahi McMath’s Mom Clear to Take Her from Hospital

It was unclear when the girl might be moved and a transfer could depend on the outcome of a separate hearing on Friday before U.S. Magistrate Donna Ryu involving the dispute.

Jahi went into cardiac arrest while recovering from the Dec. 9 surgery and shows no signs of brain activity, court records show.

Thus far, the family has not found a doctor who is willing to insert the tubes, but relatives said they may have found a facility in New York that’s willing to care for the girl.

Hospital lawyer Douglas Straus told reporters after Friday’s state court hearing that he hopes the family will soon conclude the girl has passed away.

“It’s horrible that this child has died. It’s also horrible that it’s so difficult for her family to accept that death,” said Straus, choking up. “I constantly think that wouldn’t it be great if they were able to come to terms with the terrible tragic event and that I didn’t have to stand in front of you all time after time.”
