Almost three weeks after she was found unresponsive in a bathtub, is still fighting for her life.

And according to a new report on CNN
this morning, doctors have removed her breathing tube. Two sources
close to the family told CNN on Thursday, one day after the procedure
supposedly took place.

Brown, daughter of late singing star Whitney Houston, will now be ventilated through a hole in her

“This is an indication that the patient will need this for weeks and
months to come, as opposed to hours and days,” said CNN’s chief medical
correspondent Dr. Sanjay Gupta. He said the move lowers the risk of
infection and is standard procedure.

Brown, 21, remains in a medically induced coma at Emory University
Hospital in Atlanta. Doctors are attempting to slowly lift her coma,
according to sources close to the family. The extent of her injuries is
not known.

Police have said they’re treating Brown’s case as a criminal
investigation. She was found in a bathtub full of water on January 31 at
her Roswell, Georgia, residence.

Her mother, who died in 2012, was similarly found in a bathtub, just
hours before she was to attend a pre-Grammy Awards party. A coroner
ruled Houston’s death an accidental drowning, with heart disease and
cocaine use listed as contributing factors.

Brown is her only child.
