Family of Jahi McMath Struggles to Get Surgeries for Teen

Jahi McMath’s parents are having a hard time legally getting two surgeries for their brain dead daughter, CBS.com reported. The family requested for outside doctors to come in and fit their daughter for feeding tubes in order for her to be transported, but hospital officials have denied their request. They claim they cannot perform procedures on deceased patients.
