Dr Kim later admitted that he didn’t call emergency services for around five hours, the outlet reported.
The medical episode left the teen in a coma with brain damage, requiring around-the-clock medical care.
Mr Woodruff said that the teen appeared to be making some recent progress, including being able to smile at times, but her health took a turn for the worse when she developed severe pneumonia on October 2 at her nursing home and went into cardiac arrest, news station KDVR reported.
She was resuscitated but ultimately died two days later, the outlets reported. A memorial service was held on Sunday for the teen.
