In a report by nc.yahoo.com – teenage girl was said to be near the stairs with a friend and in the middle of taking a selfie when she allegedly fell. It has been said that she had gotten dizzy.
According to the girl’s uncle, Arthuro de Leon, he got a call from the adviser of his niece Monday morning.
“Yung adviser, tumawag. Nahilo daw. Nasa ospital na daw, so medyo kampante pa ako kasi akala ko minor lang, itinawag. Pagdating namin sa ospital, sini-CPR na siya. Yung doctor sabi sa akin, yung bata dinala sa ospital dead on arrival (The adviser called me saying she got dizzy. They said she was already in the hospital so I got complacent because they say it's just minor [injury]. When we got to the hospital, they were already giving her CPR. The doctor told me that when the child was brought to the hospital, she was already dead on arrival),” De Leon said.
De Leon revealed that he received different information from the school, that's why he decided to have his niece’s autopsied.
When the results of the autopsy were released, it was noted that the young girl fell on the back of her head. The broken bones in her body also pierced her kidney.
