Whitney Houston’s Daughter Placed in Medically Induced Coma: Report

UPDATEWhitney Houston and Bobby Brown’s daughter, Bobbi Kristina Brown, was reportedly placed in a medically induced coma due to swelling of the brain, according to TMZ, after being found unconscious in a bathtub in her home in Roswell, Ga. on Saturday morning.

The 21-year-old was rushed to the hospital, where doctors stabilized her breathing. She was in the intensive care unit at North Fulton Hospital before being induced.

Police responded to a 911 call after Brown’s husband, Nick Gordon, and Brown’s friend found her in the tub at 10:30 a.m. ET. Brown was reportedly face down on her stomach in the bathtub full of water.

The two then performed CPR on her unresponsive body until the police and paramedics arrived, providing life-saving care.

Georgia’s CBS affiliate first reported the news.

Police told the Associated Press that the incident is still under investigation. The Roswell Police Department announced the news on its Facebook page, along with a photo of Brown’s residence.

The police reportedly searched her home for drugs this afternoon, but didn’t find any.

The circumstances of the incident are eerie considering that Houston was found dead in a bathtub following a drug overdose at Los Angeles’ Beverly Hilton Hotel. She died on Feb. 11, 2012.

Earlier this week, Bobbi Kristina wrote “miss you mommy” on Twitter, while also acknowledging the upcoming anniversary of Houston’s death.
