British Schoolgirl Dies After Misleading Headline

CBC ran this story Tuesday about the tragic death of Natalie Morton. She collapsed soon after getting the HPV vaccine in England. The CBC article had a section called, "Controversy Over Teenage Vaccines" and mentioned that the vaccine seemed safe, but only passingly.

Now we know the truth - Natalie had a life-threatening tumor in her chest that was, "so severe that death could have arisen at any point." It's a very sad story of a young woman's life snuffed out too soon by a horrible condition and meaninglessly correlated with a vaccine administration that we will, no doubt, hear about as causing the death for years to come.

Nothing on the CBC health page that I could find with a correction, retraction, or update. Nice. Thanks for keeping up, CBC.

(edit: as of now, there is a new short article stating the new information: here)
