Judge: California teen is brain dead after tonsil surgery – CNN.com


Oakland, California (CNN) — A judge has concluded that 13-year-old Jahi McMath, who suffered complications after tonsil surgery, is brain dead.

But it\’s unclear what will happen next to the California teen.

An attorney representing her family told reporters they haven\’t decided yet whether to appeal the judge\’s decision, which came after a court-appointed doctor testified Tuesday that Jahi was brain dead.

The judge has ruled that Jahi will remain on life support at least until December 30. Family members said they planned to spend Christmas in her hospital room, opening gifts and sipping hot chocolate.
