A 12-year-old girl with symptoms of the H1N1 swine flu virus died on Wednesday night at Schneider Children's Hospital in Petah Tikva, where she was rehospitalized in serious condition on Tuesday. The girl, who suffered from chronic illnesses, was treated last week with Tamiflu medication, the anti-viral, prescription-only drug that can reduce complications of H1N1 flu, and was sent home, but then suffered a cardiac arrest. She was brought back to the hospital and admitted to the intensive care unit. Judy Siegel-Itzkovich contributed to this report
