After the horrifying surgical procedure that left her brain dead and an escalating legal battle to keep her alive, Jahi McMath’s family has announced that they have taken the girl out of the hospital that pronounced her dead, to a place where “they’re going to call her Jahi, not `the body.'”
“Everybody played by the rules,” family attorney Christopher Dolan said of the situation shortly after McMath, a California teen placed on life support after a botched surgery, left the Children’s Hospital of Oakland, which had declared her dead. McMath’s mother, Nailah Winkfield, received the girl after the hospital had given her body as dead to the coroner, which returned the body to the family as if she were dead. From there, the girl left the hospital for an undisclosed location where the family says she will receive lifetime care. McMath has been living on life support for three and a half weeks.
