A 16-year-old Ohio girl collapsed and died after visiting a haunted house Friday.

According to WLWT, Christian Benge was in the Land of Illusion Haunted House with family and friends when she started experiencing difficulty and collapsed.

“The mother instincts kicked in and I started CPR. And I did CPR until the paramedics arrived and I trusted God. He has an ultimate plan. It was just time,” Jean Benge, Christian’s mother, told WLWT.

According to Christian’s mother, a birth defect left her daughter with one lung and had been doing fine until Friday.

“The heart had to compensate for the lung, and so the heart enlarged to four times its size and it just stopped,” Jean Benge said.
