Los Angeles (AFP) - The daughter of late singer Whitney Houston was pulled unconscious from her bathtub Saturday at her Georgia home, in an eerie echo of her mother's tragic death three years ago.

Bobbi Kristina Brown, 21, was found by her husband and a friend at her home in Roswell, roughly 22 miles (35 kilometers) north of Atlanta, Roswell Police Department spokeswoman Lisa Holland said.

"She is still alive and breathing and other than that I do not know her condition at this time," Holland told a news conference. "Investigators are on the scene at the hospital and the house."

The TMZ.com entertainment news website said Brown's husband Nick Gordon and a friend had performed CPR at the scene after making the discovery.

Emergency services were called to assist before Brown was whisked to North Fulton Hospital for treatment.

TMZ reported that sources close to the family said Bobbi Kristina had been placed in a medically induced coma to address swelling on the brain.

Soul diva Whitney Houston died in February 2012. She was found in a bathtub at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Los Angeles on the eve of the music industry's annual Grammy Awards show.

Coroners concluded she died by accidental drowning, with cocaine use and heart disease as contributing factors.

Various bottles were found in the singer's hotel room -- in all some 12 medications prescribed by five different doctors, including anxiety treatment Xanax and the potent corticosteroid Prednisone, the report said.

The singer of hits such as "I Will Always Love You" sold more than 170 million records during a nearly three-decade career, but also fought a long battle against substance abuse.

The singer left all of her assets to Bobbi Kristina -- born from her troubled marriage to singer Bobby Brown -- while excluding her ex-husband.

Lisa Holland of the Roswell Police Department confirmed to Us Weekly that the 21-year-old daughter of Bobby Brown and the late Whitney Houston was found face down in the bathtub. 

"I can’t comment on her condition because of medical privacy laws," Holland tells Us. "I know she is alive and the only thing they would notify me of is if her condition changed."

Holland revealed that the 911 call was made at 10:20 a.m. ET on Jan. 31, by a friend named Max. When police arrived, Brown's husband Nick Gordon was performing CPR, which an officer then took over. 

Brown was transported to North Fulton Hospital, where TMZ reported she was placed in a medically induced coma. 
Back at her home, police continued investigating for signs of foul play or drugs. 
"We don't leave any stone unturned," Holland said of the procedure. "So the police took a search warrant on the home. Before the warrant, initially when the police went into the home there were nothing there that indicated that anything out of the ordinary happened. There were no drugs out in the open." 
Almost three years ago, Brown's mother Whitney Houston was found dead in the bathtub of her Beverly Hills Hotel on Feb. 11, 2012.Source

A source close to the family tells ET that her father Bobby Brown, husband Nick Gordon and others have been advised to prepare for the worst and that the longer the 21-year-old remains in the coma, the more likely it will be that she will not regain consciousness. They are praying for her recovery but have also started to discuss how they would handle funeral arrangements.
"Privacy is requested in this matter. Please allow for my family to deal with this matter and give my daughter the love and support she needs at this time," Bobby said in a statement.
The daughter of the late Whitney Houston was found in a bathtub unconscious after an apparent drug overdose on Saturday morning at 10:25 a.m. Another source told ET that she was in "bad shape" when she was first found unconscious. She was taken to North Fulton Hospital and placed on a ventilator.

Local police have a search warrant and have swept the house for drugs as they continue their ongoing investigation into what happened in Brown's home.
It has been almost three years since Houston died of accidental drowning on Feb. 11, 2012. The effects of heart disease and cocaine use also contributed to her death. Brown's incident comes two weeks after Lifetime aired the Angela Bassett-directed biopic, Whitney.

The daughter of R&B singer Bobby Brown and the late Whitney Houston, was moved to Atlanta’s Emory University Hospital on Monday after initially being treated at a smaller medical facility closer her home in suburban Roswell, Georgia, CNN reported Tuesday.
In a scenario eerily similar to her mother’s death, Bobbi Kristina was found submerged, face down in her tub. She was rushed to North Fulton Hospital and placed in a medically induced coma. However, her immediate prognosis was described as bleak.
She is in “really bad shape,” an individual close to the Houston family told CNN.
“Hoping for the best, preparing for the worst,” the individual said of loved ones who have gathered at the 21-year-old’s bedside — including her father Bobby Brown and family friend Nick Gordon.
The source also shared that Bobbi Kristina’s eyes had opened and closed Monday, but doctors warned the family against reading too much into the movement. The medical team is reportedly attempting to reduce swelling on her brain, but they won’t know the extent of possible damage until she’s taken off of prescribed sedatives, the individual said.
The Roswell police department, which initially responded to the 911 call from Bobbi Kristina’s home, did not immediately return multiple calls made by TheWrap for comment.
In a previous statement, officer Lisa Holland said police administered life-saving measures until Brown could be transported to a hospital.
“Her husband and a friend located her in a bathtub this morning and she was unresponsive,” Holland said on Saturday. “He started CPR and a police officer took over lifesaving measures until an ambulance arrived. She was transported to the hospital. Please keep her and the family in your thoughts and prayers.”
“Privacy is requested in this matter. Please allow for my family to deal with this matter and give my daughter the love and support she needs at this time,” Bobby Brown said in a separate statement.
As to speculation about the involvement of drugs or alcohol in the incident,” officer Holland said, “So the police took a search warrant on the home. Before the warrant — initially when the police went into the home — there [was] nothing there that indicated that anything out of the ordinary happened. There were no drugs out in the open.
“We don’t leave any stone unturned,” Holland added.

Washington (AFP) - Police have opened a criminal investigation into the boyfriend of Bobbi Kristina Brown, US media reported, one week after the 21-year old daughter of late singing legend Whitney Houston was pulled unconscious from a bathtub.

CNN and TMZ reported Saturday that a criminal investigation has been launched against Nick Gordon, who reportedly said that he found Brown non-responsive in the bathtub of their home near Atlanta, Georgia.

The incident appeared to have eerie echoes of Houston's fatal accidental drowning nearly three years ago in a Los Angeles tub.

But news reports said Saturday that Brown, who is in the hospital in a medically induced coma, sustained unexplained injuries prior to the incident.

The reports, which provided no details as to the nature of the injuries the young woman is said to have, say authorities reportedly are also suspicious because she was found face down in the bathtub.

TMZ wrote that it was told by multiple sources that there is a history of violence between Brown and boyfriend Gordon and that police are looking into a possible altercation more than an hour before Brown was found.

Reports call Gordon Brown's boyfriend, saying there are no official documents showing they were ever legally married, although the couple presented themselves in public as husband and wife.

Singing star Whitney Houston died in February 2012 when she was found in a bathtub at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Los Angeles on the eve of the music industry's annual Grammy Awards show.

Coroners concluded that the singer died by accidental drowning, with cocaine use and heart disease as contributing factors.

Some of Bobbi Kristina’s organs have started to shut down and life support machines may not be able to keep her alive much longer, TMZ reported this weekend.
Despite this latest grim development, sources told the entertainment website that Bobbi Kristina’s father, Bobby Brown, continues to hold out hope that she will get better and wants to keep her on a ventilator.
The 21-year-old daughter of Whitney Houston and Brown was found unconscious and face down in her bathtub on Jan. 31. She was rushed to an Atlanta-area hospital, where she’s been in a medically induced coma since.
Days after her admission, doctors told the family there was little they could do to save the famous offspring.
The organ failure reports come just days after family members said Bobbi Kristina was showing signs of improvement.
Last week, Bobbi Kristina’s aunt Leolah Brown revealed that she appeared to be getting better and was “opening her eyes.”
“There are so many signs showing us that she will be OK. Krissi is fine,” Brown told Fox 5 Atlanta. “She’s opening her eyes. Krissi is doing well right now. She is.”
Leolah Brown also said she thinks Bobbi Kristina’s boyfriend, Nick Gordon, will “110 percent” be charged for a crime when the investigation into Bobbi Kristina’s condition is completed.
A public prayer vigil was held for Bobbi Kristina on Monday night in Riverdale, Georgia, to the backdrop of Whitney Houston songs. Riverdale Mayor Dr. Evelyn Wynn-Dixon noted what’s important about the tragic situation.
“Forget that he [bobby Brown] is a renowned artist. That her mama, the late Whitney, was a renowned artist. These [are] still people. They bleed and hurt like us,” Wynn-Dixon said.
Representatives for R&B singer Brown did not immediately respond to TheWrap’s request for comment on Bobbi Kristina’s prognosis.
