Teenager looses a leg.....and dies after giving birth

A sixteen-year old girl has been diagnosed with heavy internal bleeding after a cesarean section on Wednesday night in Tyumen hospital №2. According to an Internet edition of "NewsProm.Ru", emergency unit surgeons had to cut off one of the blood vessels supplying blood to the lower limbs in order to save the young girl's life. One of her legs had to be amputated as a result of no blood circulation in her lower limbs. The situation got out of hand and surgeons had to act fast right there at the maternal hospital. It was only later that the girl was transported to a different clinic.  
The department of public health and medical insurance of the Tyumen region points out the overall uniqueness of the situation. A special commission was formed in order to find out all the details pertaining to the event.
Director of the town’s department of public health and medical insurance Alexander Fuilimonov has barely commented on Wednesday's event. According to Filimonov, the information is classified. "We will continue our investigations for as long as needed. All the acquired information will only be disclosed to the teenagers' relatives." "It was no surgeon's fault," notes the director in his interview to "NewsProm.Ru".
