In­fec­tion blamed in death of Rus­sian model

China Daily (Canada) - - NEWS CAPSULE -

A Shang­hai agency rep­re­sent­ing a 14-year-old Rus­sian model said that she died from mul­ti­ple or­gan fail­ure caused by pyemia, a type of blood poi­son­ing, rather than over­work dur­ing her twom­onth stay in China.

Vlada Dzuba’s death at Shang­hai Rui­jin Hos­pi­tal on Oct 27 had noth­ing to do with ex­haus­tion or over­work, as sug­gested by some reports, ac­cord­ing to Shang­hai Esee Model Man­age­ment, one of China’s largest mod­el­ing agen­cies.

A med­i­cal re­port pro­vided by the hos­pi­tal said Dzuba had con­tracted pyemia, which had dam­aged mul­ti­ple or­gans and re­sulted in liver dys­func­tion and kid­ney prob­lems.

Zhai Xiaowen, di­rec­tor of hema­tol­ogy at Chil­dren’s Hos­pi­tal of Fu­dan Univer­sity in Shang­hai, said the dis­ease has noth­ing to do with over­work. “It is caused by se­vere bac­te­rial in­fec­tion,” she said.
