At the medical centre, the girl was diagnosed with aspiration pneumonia, a condition caused by inhaling liquid into the respiratory tract or lungs. Although hospital staff were able to stabilize her, the severity of her condition required her transfer to a pediatric emergency department at a university hospital.

The current condition of the girl remains unknown as investigators continue to probe the circumstances surrounding the incident. Authorities are working to determine the events leading up to the girl’s ordeal and ensure appropriate measures are taken to prevent similar incidents in the future.
