Family finds facility to take 'brain-dead' girl

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - The family of a 13-year-old girl declared brain dead says it has located a second nursing home willing to provide for her long-term care, after another facility backed out.

The family's lawyer, Christopher Dolan, says the new facility is in Southern California, but he wouldn't provide its name.

Dolan said Friday that he had held a teleconference with the director of the facility and a lawyer for Children's Hospital, where Jahi McMath is now being kept on a ventilator.

The hospital said it would cooperate with a transfer under certain conditions, including obtaining consent from the Alameda County coroner. Dolan says he has obtained that consent.

Jahi started bleeding heavily after tonsil surgery and went into cardiac arrest before being declared brain dead.
