The daughter of late singer Whitney Houston was pulled unconscious from her bathtub at her home in Georgia in an eerie echo of her mother's tragic death three years ago, several US media reports said Saturday.

The Atlanta Journal Constitution quoted local police as saying that Bobbi Kristina Brown, 21, was found by her husband and a friend at her home in Roswell, roughly 35 km north of Atlanta. Emergency services were called to the scene before Brown was whisked to North Fulton Hospital for treatment, the report said.
The website reported that Brown was now breathing as she underwent treatment in hospital. Soul diva 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 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.
