Sadly a girl has died very recently after already having a problem with her lungs. Ella Kissi-Debrah was nine when she died on 4th July 2018. She died because of an asthma attack which her family and scientists believe had something to do with pollution.
Videos show she already had problems with her breathing. Ella was shown in a video after getting out of a swimming pool. She was really struggling and was breathing very heavily. She was also breathing in pollution when ever she went out. An inquest is going to be held to decide if the pollution was to blame. I feel sorry for Ella because her tragic death wasn’t even her fault.
Pollution isn’t a new problem. A long time ago, in the Victorian times, the streets of London were filled with air pollution known as smog.
