7-year-old girl dies during tonsillectomy - CNN

"A 7-year-old South Carolina girl died one minute into surgery to remove her tonsils, her parents told CNN affiliate WHNS.

Paisley Cogsdill snored in her sleep but was perfectly healthy, relatives said, according to WHNS. But her heart suddenly stopped during the operation in Greenwood on Friday."

What? You think medicine is at the level portrayed in Star Trek?
Personally I'd wait for the coroner's report to see what the cause was......... The girl may not have been "perfectly healthy".

Mistakes happen...adults are suppose to learn that and except it as part of life....but many comfy cozy spoiled rotten humans today think if perfection in medicine isn't performed all the time and every time someone is at fault legally..I can guarantee you one thing....we won't get a better system by giving it to Bernie to run....

Thats not a mistake. Its a lack of professionalism. The little girl should have been tested first. Some doctors do it. Others are lazy and dont.

Dude, medically speaking (when put in perspective) we're barely out of the dark ages. What, you think we can do a quick test and determine EVERY potential health problem? You've been watching too much Sci Fi............

Her heart stopped. Thats pretty much the first thing a doctor would be testing. She didnt die because she had a rare blood disease that was activated by exposure to oxygen.

The daughter of a girlfriend was 21 and in great health and died in her sleep. The coroner said it was arrhythmia. So sad.

Was it during a procedure? Did she have an EKG before it happened?
