BREAKING: Injured Micobie girl dies at GPHC, taking death toll to 20
Following two successful resuscitations since the Mahdia dorm fire on May 21, Sherana Daniels, 13, passed away at the Georgetown Public Hospital Tuesday morning at about 10:30hrs.
She was hospitalised in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) with injuries related to carbon monoxide inhalation.
Doctors say the teen girl also suffered cardiac arrests on two occasions.
The girl is from Micobie, Region Eight. She was initially pronounced dead hours after the inferno but the death toll had to be revised since she was successfully resuscitated and flown to the city for medical attention.
She was among several girls who survived and were patients at the GPHC. One was flown overseas at the weekend for critical care in New York.
A total of 19 girls perished in the blaze and a 5-year-old boy.
Four of the 19 girls have already been laid to rest.
