(Examiner) Jahi McMath has been declared legally dead and deceased by Judge Grillo, and the nursing home that originally agreed to take Jahi McMath has backed out. “We lost the facility that we were originally going to go with,” said Omari Sealey, Jahi’s uncle and the family’s spokesman, reported CBS News on Dec. 27, 2013.

Jahi McMath’s uncle said that the family is now in talks with three other nursing homes, two of them in the Los Angeles area and one in New York.

The challenge with transporting the 13-year-old girl — who bled from her mouth and went into cardiac arrest following what was supposed to be a routine tonsillectomy – lies in the fact that in order to transport Jahi to another facility, she would need to have surgically inserted breathing and feeding tubes.
