Schoolgirl Dies Because of Algebra Test

Last week, sixth form girl Yelena, 11, from the school number 50 in the Russian city of Ulyanovsk died over heart attack. As it turned out later, the girl died after she learnt about an algebra test which was to be held on that day.

Classmates of the girl say that Yelena wasn’t ready for the test; she got extremely disappointed and immediately rushed to the class to review formulas. But she fell dead right at the stairs. Teachers say that recently Yelena lost her consciousness several times right at the school. Her parents showed her to doctors many times, but physicians only supposed that was ordinary nervous overstrain. In fact, the 11-year-old girl suffered from heart failure.
