Health chiefs have launched a probe into the death of a teenager who went into hospital 'laughing and singing' but then died during a 'routine' MRI scan. Alice Sloman, 14, went to Torbay Hospital to be checked for water on the brain but suffered a 'catastrophic' heart attack while inside the machine due to a lack of oxygen which shut down her organs.
