(The Corner) – Jahi McMath suffered catastrophic complications from throat surgery in December of 2013 — 3 1/2 years ago.
She was soon declared to be brain dead, and Oakland Children’s Hospital informed her mother, Nailah Winkfield, that life support would be terminated.
Winkfield sued, but after an independent medical examination, the judge ruled that Jahi was deceased and allowed a death certificate to be issued. He also played Solomon, and worked out a settlement whereby Children’s Hospital transferred Jahi to her relatives while still on life support. We now know she was moved to New Jersey, where she remains today. CONTINUE
