Stay on ventilator removal is about to expire for teen

OAKLAND, California (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Time is running out for an Oakland family who's keeping 13-year-old Jahi McMath on a ventilator.

A court order preventing Children's Hospital Oakland from removing the ventilator expires Monday at 5:00 p.m.

McMath has been on that ventilator for more than two weeks following complications after a tonsillectomy.
