Bobbi Kristina Brown was moved Monday to Emory University Hospital in Atlanta, media reports said. The 21-year-old daughter of singers Bobby Brown and the now-deceased Whitney Houston was hospitalized Saturday at North Fulton Hospital near her Roswell home after being found face down and unresponsive in a bathtub.
Brown remained on a ventilator in the intensive care unit at the Atlanta hospital as of late Monday, CNN reported, citing sources close to the family.
"Bobbi Kristina is fighting for her life and is surrounded by immediate family. As her father already stated, we are asking you to honor our request for privacy during this difficult time," the family of Whitney Houston said in a statement released to ABC News Tuesday.
Brown’s husband Nick Gordon and a friend began performing CPR after discovering her unconscious in the tub around 10:30 a.m. EST, WSB-TV, Atlanta, reported. Police took over after arriving at the scene until rescue crews transported Brown to North Fulton Hospital where doctors placed her in a medically induced coma. Doctors will not be able to check the status of Brown’s brain function until the sedatives are reduced, CNN reported.
“Privacy is requested in this matter. Please allow for my family to deal with this matter and give my daughter the love and support she needs at this time,” Bobby Brown said in a statement released to Us Weekly Sunday.
Officials are still investigating the events that led to Brown’s hospitalization, CNN reported.
The uncanny incident happened almost three years after Brown’s famous mother, Whitney Houston, who abused cocaine, was found dead in a hotel bathtub in Beverly Hills, California. The Grammy Award winner’s death was an accidental drowning, the Los Angeles County Coroner’s Office told ABC News in 2012.
