Death in school: Girl falls from stairs while taking selfie

News5 reports that a 14-year-old girl named Marie Rocello, who was a third year high school student at the Rizal High School in Pasig, died on Monday, June 30, after she fell down the stairs while she was taking a selfie with a friend.

The girl was taken to the hospital but it was already too late.

The autopsy later showed that she had hit head and her broken rib had punctured her kidney. The girl’s family thinks, though, that the school has to have a more organized response to an emergency.
