Officer Lisa Holland of the Roswell Police Department held a press conference on Saturday to update news outlets on the condition of Bobbi Kristina Brown, according to access hollywood. She began by recounting the timeline of Saturday’s events when Brown was found unresponsive in her bathtub.
“This morning around 10:23 we received a 9-1-1 call of a person unresponsive face-down in a bathtub. We arrived on the scene and found Bobbi Kristina Brown was unresponsive,” she said, in a video posted by FOX 5 Atlanta WAGA. “Her husband [Nick Gordon] had found her in the bathtub and started performing CPR on her. A friend in the house called 9-1-1 and our officers arrived within minutes and took over the life-saving measures, continued on with the CPR until the ambulance arrived and transported her to North Fulton Hospital.”
Officer Holland was unable to elaborate on Brown’s current medical status, but did confirm she’s “still alive.” “Right now, I can’t comment on any condition because of the HIPAA laws, but I can tell you she is still alive,” Officer Holland stated. She did provide additional details about what police observed upon arriving on the scene Saturday morning.
“As far as I know there was nothing concerning initially to the police or that there was any signs of struggle or that there was any reason to believe anything suspicious happened,” she said. An active investigation is ongoing at Brown’s Atlanta residence, according to the officer.
“The detectives are still out on the scene at the house. We don’t know if this was a medical condition where she had a problem in the tub or if it was any type of self-initiated or overdose type of situation, so the detectives are out on the scene still, talking to people that were inside the house – family members and friends – inside the residence and they’ll still be out there for a while to make sure that, you know,…no stone is left uncovered,” Officer Holland explained.
This is second time Roswell Police have been dispatched to Brown’s home this month, Officer Holland shared.
“We were out there just recently. We were called on January 23rd for a fight,” she revealed. “The person that called 9-1-1 was not at the scene when they called us. They said there was some type of disturbance or a fight at this house. When we arrived, it was around 8 o’clock at night. There was no disturbance. Nobody home.”
Brown’s mother, Whitney Houston, died nearly three years ago under similar circumstances. The late singer was found in a bathtub at the Beverly Hilton in Los Angeles on February 11, 2012. Officer Holland commented on the eerie similarities between the cases of the mother and daughter.
“It is very bizarre that this same situation happens. I feel very badly for the friends and the family and for her. Our thoughts and prayers are definitely with this family,” Officer Holland expressed. “I can’t say enough how sad this makes everybody. Any time we go to anybody’s house and we have to help revive somebody, I mean, it is a difficult situation for a police officer who actually had to physically perform CPR on this person, whether it be Bobbi Kristina or any citizen. It’s very difficult.”
