According to a police report, paramedics were called to Bobbi Kristina Brown’s Georgia home after she “drowned” in her bathtub.
The word “drown” in the Jan. 31 report is critical because it means someone — in this case, Bobbi — died underwater. Accidental drowning was listed as the cause of death of the 21-year-old’s mother, Whitney Houston, in February 2012.
As ‘In Touch’ previously reported, BK’s husband, Nick Gordon, and a friend administered CPR after they found the young woman face down and unconscious in a bathtub. Despite their attempts to resuscitate her for 25 minutes, it was paramedics who were able to successfully revive her. They then brought her to a hospital, where she was reportedly put in a medically induced coma to reduce brain swelling.
Bobbi’s brain function is said to be “significantly diminished,” though doctors allegedly saw “minimal response” in her brain to stimuli. The slight improvement is said to be a good sign as it momentarily delays any necessary conversations of turning off life support for the moment.
