McMath Order Extended

(Oakland, CA) -- A judge overseeing the case of a brain dead Oakland, California girl is extending an order to keep her on a ventilator at Children's Hospital. The order will allow the hospital to keep Jahi McMath on life support for at least another week. Yesterday afternoon, the girl's family announced a facility in New York State has agreed to take her and has arranged for transport by air ambulance to that location. The eighth-grader was declared brain dead after suffering complications from tonsil surgery earlier this month.
