In December of 2013 Jahi McMath underwent a surgery to help her sleep apnea. After the surgery she was awake and responsive and even asked for a popsicle. A few hours later she had massive blood loss and ended up in cardiac arrest. They revived her but she was declared brain dead. Her family fought for her because they didn’t believe that she was brain dead. They brought the hospital to court and forced them to keep her on life support.
