Pop singer, 12, in coma since end of January after taking part in a silly stunt on live television, her story is now grabbing headlines worldwide. On January 29th, the popular Japanese group 3B Junior, composed of 25 girls between the ages of 10 to 16 was invited to TV Asahi.

According to a representative for the network, 5 members of the collective were asked to take part in a stunt, which consisted of inhaling helium from a canister in order to change voice. One of the pop singers whose name has not been revealed immediately fell ill during the game.

Witnesses claimed that the 12-year-old child fell unconscious and was rushed to a Tokyo hospital. Doctors believe that the youngster suffered an embolism in the blood supply to her brain. For over a week, the girl has been in a coma and has shown no sign of life, according to a spokesperson for the network. The rep stated:

“There are signs of recovery, but she is still not fully fit.”

The spokesperson has apologized for the horrible accident, but has declined to reveal the identity of the young pop star currently in a coma because she is a minor. Japanese authorities investigating the matter have discovered that the child inhaled the gas from a canister, which was marked for adult use only.

Police say professional negligence caused the injury. In a study published in the Journal of Forensic Sciences, it was revealed that inhaling air or helium gas from balloons displaces the air in the lungs or ruptures air sacs in the lungs, which is comparable to drowning. The experts wrote:

“Thousands of party goers continue to inhale helium thinking it to be funny rather than life threatening.Comedy television and radio programs often misrepresent helium as a safe practice when, in fact, but can be deadly,”

Over 79 Australians died from inhaling the gas between July 2005 and December 2009 and 62 people died from inhaling helium in 2013 in England. 12-year-old pop singer is in a coma, family and friends feel all of this could have been prevented.
