APTOPIX Tonsillectomy Brain Dead Girl
In this Dec. 16, 2013 photo, Nailah Winkfield, mother of 13-year-old Jahi McMath, wipes her face while speaking to reporters with her husband, Martin Winkfield, in front of Children's Hospital Oakland in Oakland, Calif. McMath remains on life support at Children's Hospital Oakland nearly a week after doctors declared her brain dead, following a supposedly routine tonsillectomy.
