From Black Voices
The family attorney of the California girl declared brain dead after a tonsillectomy says she has been taken out of Children’s Hospital of Oakland.
Christopher Dolan tells The Associated Press that 13-year-old Jahi McMath left the hospital in a private ambulance shortly before 8 p.m. Sunday.
Dolan says she was taken while attached to a ventilator but without a feeding tube. Her destination was not immediately disclosed.
David Durand, the hospital’s Chief of Pediatrics, says the girl was released to the coroner. Durand said in an email the coroner then released her into the custody of her mother, Nailah Winkfield, as per court order.
