Bobbi Kristina Brown on life support, family deciding next steps



ROSWELL, Ga. - Roswell police say Bobbi Kristina Brown, daughter of Whitney Houston, remains on life support after being found unresponsive in her home Saturday.

On Monday, a source close to the family of Bobbi Kristina Brown tells Channel 2’s Jessica Jaglois that anyone who isn't at the hospital now, needs to get there. The same source says the family will make the decision to take Bobbi Kristina off life support within the next few days.

Police say they responded to the house in the Ellard subdivision off Holcomb Bridge Road around 10:25 a.m. Saturday.

Brown’s husband and a friend told police they found her in the bathtub and started CPR. Police told Channel 2's Mike Petchenik that Brown was found face down in the water of the tub.

“We don't know if this was a medical condition and she was having problems in the tub, or if it was any type of self-initiated or overdose type of situation,” said Lisa Holland with the Roswell Police Department.

Police took over life-saving measures until rescue crews arrived.

Brown, 21, was transported to North Fulton Hospital. Police say paramedics continued CPR until they arrived at the hospital.

Police say she is alive and breathing, but her condition is still unknown. A family friend told CNN that Brown has been placed in a medically-induced coma to control brain swelling.

Police told Channel 2's Tyisha Fernandes that four people were inside the townhouse when Brown was found in the bathtub. 

Police requested a search warrant to enter the home. Video from NewsChopper 2 showed several officers going in and out of the home Saturday afternoon.

Police say they searched the home and did not find any drugs inside.

Brown’s mother, Whitney Houston, was found in a similar situation nearly three years ago. Houston drowned in a hotel bathtub. An autopsy found that cocaine and heart disease played a part in her death.

On Sunday, Brown's father, Bobby Brown, and his attorney released the following statements:

“The report that Bobbi Kristina Brown has been taken to the hospital in Atlanta, Georgia is accurate. No additional information will be forthcoming,” said Christopher Brown, legal counsel for Bobby Brown.

“Privacy is requested in this matter. Please allow for my family to deal with this matter and give my daughter the love and support she needs at this time,” said Bobby Brown.

La Toya Jackson is one of several celebrities who used Twitter to express her support. Jackson tweeted: "Let's All Send Love Light & Prayers to Bobbi Kristina Brown!"

Missy Elliot tweeted: “Still Praying 4 Bobbi Kristina I see sum ppl making jokes. She lost her mom that's tougher than u may think 2 deal with.”
