Bobbi Kristina Brown Alive After Being Found Unresponsive In Bathtub Full Of Water

Whitney Houston's daughter Bobbi Kristina Brown was "still alive and breathing" in a hospital Saturday afternoon after being found face down in a bathtub full of water in Roswell, Georgia, police in the Atlanta suburb said.

Brown, 21, "was not breathing" when a man identified as her husband and a friend found her at about 10:25 a.m. at a townhouse in a Roswell subdivision, police spokeswoman Lisa Holland said. They called 911 and performed CPR until public safety officers arrived and took over, she said.

Bobbi Kristina was discovered by her husband Nick Gordon who began CPR before police took over as they awaited an ambulance. While she is currently stable, she is in a medically induced coma as she is suffering from swelling in her brain. Her father, Bobby Brown, and Tyler Perry, are currently by her side. This comes days before the third anniversary of her mother's accidental drowning in a bath tub on February 11, 2012.

Brown was taken to North Fulton Hospital, where "she is still alive and breathing. Other than that, I don't know her condition," Holland said Saturday afternoon at a press briefing. It was unclear whether Brown was breathing on her own or with a respirator.

Nobody knows what caused Brown's unresponsiveness, Holland said, but police consider it a medical incident at this time. She said investigators had found nothing to indicate it was drug- or alcohol-related.

Police had been to the residence recently. Somebody reported a fight there January 23, but nobody answered the door and officers found no evidence of an altercation, Holland said.

Obviously the mother died in this very same manner, with her being found deceased in a tub and again, two years later, this is happening here," Holland told NBC affiliate WXIA. "Obviously we wish this family well, and our thoughts and prayers are with this family."

Houston, 48, had struggled for years with cocaine, marijuana and pills, and her behavior had become erratic. Authorities examining Houston's death found a dozen prescription drug bottles in the hotel suite. They concluded that she accidentally drowned. Heart disease and cocaine use were also listed as contributing factors in her death.

Earlier this month, Lifetime released the biopic, "Whitney," which focused on the "I Will Always Love You" singer's drug use. Houston's sister-in-law, Pat Houston, released a statement blasting the film and said neither her mother, Cissy Houston, or Bobbi Kristina Brown, were consulted.
