Whitney Houston’s only child, in a scene painfully reminiscent of her mother’s death, was found facedown and not breathing Saturday in a bathtub at her Georgia home, authorities said.

Bobbi Kristina Brown, 21, was revived and rushed to a nearby hospital after her husband and a friend discovered her in the water-filled tub at their suburban Atlanta home around 10:25 a.m.

The celebrity child was placed in a medically induced coma because of swelling on the brain, TMZ.com reported.

“Right now, I can’t comment on any condition because of the HIPAA laws, but I can tell you she is still alive,” Roswell, Ga., police spokeswoman Lisa Holland said in an early evening press briefing.

While authorities said it was unclear what caused Bobbi Kristina to lose consciousness in the tub, “Entertainment Tonight” reported she suffered an apparent accidental drug overdose.

Bobbi Kristina was found unresponsive by her husband, Nick Gordon. Gordon immediately immediately began performing CPR on his stricken wife, helping to save her life just 12 days before the third anniversary of Houston’s drug-addled bathtub drowning in Beverly Hills.

A recording of the rescue call captured a voice reporting a “possible cardiac arrest.”

“CPR in progress,” the rescue worker is heard telling a dispatcher at one point. “She is gurgling at this time.”

Bobbi Kristina’s father, hard-living R&B singer Bobby Brown, 45, arrived at North Fulton Hospital on Saturday evening with actor Tyler Perry, TMZ reported.

Bobbi Kristina Brown posted a selfie photo to her Instagram about 16 hours before being found unresponsive in a bathtub.realbkristinahg/via Instagram Bobbi Kristina Brown posted a selfie photo to her Instagram about 16 hours before being found unresponsive in a bathtub.

Bobbi Kristina’s other family members said they were optimistic. “She’s been through a lot,” first cousin Jerod Brown, who goes by YF Kennedy, told NBCNews.com. “But she’s a tiger. She’s going to pull through it.”

Police scouring Bobbi Kristina’s home found no drugs, according to TMZ.

While few details were released about the near-fatal incident, the timing and similarities resurrected thoughts of seven-time Grammy winner Houston’s demise.

“Obviously, the mother died in the very same manner,” Holland noted during a press briefing.

Bobbi Kristina, an aspiring singer-actress, was hospitalized for depression after Houston’s Feb. 11, 2012, death and reportedly battled with a drinking problem in the ensuing months.

Other reports indicated the then-teen was found snorting cocaine after her mother’s New Jersey funeral.

“I hope Bobbi Kristina gets the help she needs,” tweeted songwriter Diane Warren, who penned seven songs Houston recorded. “Poor thing. Almost 3 yrs to the day her mom passed and the same thing almost happened to her.”

Yellow crime scene tape blocked off the front of the home, where she and her husband of one year live.

Cops were on the scene at the home and at the hospital, and officers got a search warrant to “go through and just make sure everything is covered,” said Holland.

Police were “talking with friends and family that were at the house at the time to see if there was a cause, if it was other than health conditions,” she added.

Nine days ago, police also responded to Bobbi Kristina’s home. Someone called 911 on Jan. 23 reporting a fight broke out there — but nobody was home when officers arrived, Holland said.

On Jan. 26, Houston’s daughter tweeted about missing her mother, writing: “miss you mommy ..:’) SO much.. loving you more every sec.”

She added a sweet pic on Instagram Friday showing herself and her smiling husband mugging for the camera.

Bobbi Kristina also sent out an upbeat tweet on Thursday about her professional aspirations: “Let’s start this career up&&moving OUT to TO YOU ALLLL quick shall we?”

But another tweet to a friend seemed fraught with emotion: “Sarah I miss and need you.”

The hospitalized woman is the only child of Houston and Brown, who had a rocky 15-year marriage. Houston was awarded custody of their daughter when the two divorced.

Bobbi Kristina already led a tumultuous life growing up with the two volatile, chart-topping singers.

She was a regular on the reality show “Being Bobby Brown” with her mom and dad, and appeared later on a second reality program — the short-lived “The Houstons: On Our Own,” launched after Houston’s death.

Mother and daughter were best friends, and Bobbi Kristina was devastated by Houston’s drowning after she ingested a cocktail of prescription sedatives.

Toxicology reports showed the singer had marijuana, Xanax, the muscle relaxant Flexeril and the over-the-counter medication Benadryl in her system.

Houston’s daughter was admitted a day later to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center suffering from massive depression.

Bobbi Kristina’s cousin said she was drug-free and focused on a new album. “She hasn’t been drinking or doing drugs and she’s cut down on cigarettes,” Kennedy told E! News.

Houston, who died at age 48, left her entire $ 115 million estate to her daughter. The multiplatinum singer sold more than 50 million records while ringing up hits like “Saving All My Love for You” and “I Will Always Love you.”

Bobbi Kristina and her husband were both raised by Houston, who took in a 12-year-old Gordon when his birth mother could no longer take care of him.

The two eventually became romantically involved, with an engagement, a breakup and a second engagement preceding their January 2014 nuptials.

Bobbi Kristina was one of several family members upset by the recent airing of the made-for-TV biopic “Whitney.” In one of her social media posts, she said her late mother remained her role model and influence. “One thing you CAN depend on is my mother taught me well,” she wrote.
