Now a court has ordered that 13-year-old Jahi McMath may not have her ventilator turned off.

The battle has been long. CNN says:

"There have been days of prayers and protests for Jahi McMath. There was a fierce court battle as a devastated family fought to keep her on life support and doctors argued she had already died. The case drew national attention and fueled debate.

Doctors and a judge have declared her brain dead and said there's no chance Jahi will come back to life."

"The story is heartbreaking but I can't help but be curious as to how the whole thing will turn out," says San Francisco resident. "The family must be fraught with anguish."

Now the same judge who said the ventilator would have to be turned off has said it must remain on until 5pm on January 7th.

It's unclear where Jahi McMath will go next as the New York facility which had been reported as taking her, does not appear to exist, or does not appear to want to take her.

"There are no winners in this very tragic case," said Sam Singer, a spokesman for Children's Hospital in Oakland.
