THE DAUGHTER OF late singer Whitney Houston has reportedly been placed in a medically induced coma after being pulled unconscious from her bathtub at her home in Georgia yesterday.

Local police said Bobbi Kristina Brown, 21, was found by her husband and a friend at her home in Roswell, roughly 22 miles north of Atlanta.

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

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

Emergency services were called to the scene before Brown was whisked to North Fulton Hospital for treatment, the report said.

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

Sky News reports that Brown’s husband Nick Gordon and friend had performed CPR at the scene after making the discovery.

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