(KNTV-TV) Children’s Hospital Oakland cast doubt Thursday evening whether a 13-year-old girl declared brain dead earlier this month could be transferred to another facility, despite the family announcing earlier that they had found another facility in the Bay Area willing to keep her on life support.

Jahi McMath’s uncle, Omari Sealey, said the family is “still hoping for a miracle” and “may have gotten one” by finding another facility to take Jahi and “give her another fighting chance to wake up.”

But Children’s Hospital shot back a statement an hour later, saying that the family’s attorney has said that multiple surgical procedures will be necessary to move Jahi and that he has not specified the facility they hope to transfer her to.
