Girl on life support after tonsil surgery to move

OAKLAND, California (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - A lawyer for the family of a 13-year-old girl, pronounced brain dead after tonsil surgery, says there is another facility willing to keep the girl on life support.

Thursday he asked Children's Hospital of Oakland to cooperate by performing a few procedures needed to move Jahi McMath.

Earlier this week a judge ruled McMath is brain dead, and the hospital is not required to keep her on life support past December 30th.
