SAN FRANCISCO (KPIX 5) - Family members of 13-year-old Jahi McMath are holding out hope for a miracle recovery after a routine procedure has left the girl brain dead.

Last week, McMath went in to Children's Hospital Oakland to get her tonsils removed.

The child is now hooked up to a ventilator and doctors are telling mother Nailah Winkfield she won't recover.
