Hospital to take 13-year-old girl off life support despite family's wishes

Posted: Updated:

(CNN) -  Doctors plan to disconnect 13-year-old Jahi McMath from life support machines at 5 PM today. 


A hospital spokesman says those machines have kept her breathing but they have not kept her alive. Doctors pronounced Jahi "brain dead" earlier this month after she underwent surgery to treat her sleep apnea. She had complications and went into cardiac arrest.
