The child became sick in the evening, in connection with this she was taken to a medical institution, and after examination by doctors she was transfered to another medical institution. There, a few hours later, the girl died. The investigating authorities of the Investigative Directorate of the Investigative Committee of Russia for Novosibirsk oblast, on the fact of the death of a minor, investigated a criminal case against a surgeon in one of the hospitals in accordance with Part 2, Article 293 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation (negligence), which is currently being considered in court.
