EuroWeekly News reported:
According to local media, the young teenager was at home with a friend when she began feeling unwell.
She apparently went upstairs to her room on the upper floor of the house and following several minutes without reappearing, the friend went to look for her.
Upon entering the girl’s bedroom, the friend found the 13-year-old lying on the floor and immediately raised the alarm.
Parademics from San Paolo rushed to the scene as well as a rescue helicopter.
CPR was performed on the girl but she was pronounced dead on arrival at the hospital in Prato.
According to La Nazione, the girl was being treated at the Meyer hospital where, not long ago, doctors diagnosed her with myocarditis.
The news outlet reported that an autopsy has been ordered to discover whether myocarditis was the cause of death.
