*According to reports, Bobbi Kristina Brown is still hospitalized and continues to be unresponsive after being found face down in a bathtub (filled with water) at her Georgia home and is breathing with the help of a ventilator.
Bobbi Kristina’s husband, Nick Gordon, and other family members, including her father Bobby Brown, are said to be by her side.
The “machine (ventilator) is aiding” and “she has vital signs,” adding that precautionary measures are being implemented, a family source told E! News.
CNN, citing a source close to the family, reported that she was placed in a medically induced coma after being hospitalized. There has been no official confirmation of this by doctors or family members. Near-drowning victims are often placed on ventilators to help them breathe and are also sometimes put under medically induced comas for some time in a bid to reduce potential swelling and inflammation in the brain.
Speaking of which, TMZ is reporting the 21-year-old has “significantly diminished” brain function and doctors have told her family it does not look good … this according to sources connected with the family.
As we reported, Gordon and a friend had found her unconscious in the tub early on Saturday and helped revive her before officers arrived and paramedics took over life-saving measures and transported her to the medical center. Police are still investigating the incident.
Bobbi Kristina’s medical emergency occurred almost three years to the day her mother was found dead at age 48 inside a filled bathtub at a Beverly Hills hotel room. The coroner’s report stated that cocaine played a part in the death of the iconic singer and The Bodyguard actress, who had battled substance abuse for years, as did Bobby.
No drugs were found following a preliminary investigation at Bobbi Kristina’s home, police had said. Her cousin and her dad’s nephew, Jerod Brown, told E! News on Saturday that “Krissi doesn’t do drugs” and also “hasn’t been drinking.”
