Jahi McMath went to the hospital to have her tonsils removed. After the surgery, everything seemed fine. The young girl's family said Jahi was alert and talking when she woke up, even asking for a popsicle for a sore throat. And then tragedy struck. While still in the ICU, Jahi began bleeding profusely before going into cardiac arrest, the family said. Three days later, doctors declared Jahi brain dead.
Jahi's family fought with the hospital and courts over whether or not Jahi should remain on a ventilator, saying they saw signs of life in the 13-year-old girl. Tonight, a lawyer for the family said Jahi has been released from the hospital and is now in an undisclosed facility where she is receiving antibiotics and nutritional support.
