Girl dies when she could have been treated

This makes me sad.
"An 11-year-old girl died after her parents prayed for healing rather than seek medical help for a treatable form of diabetes, police said Tuesday.

The girl's parents, Dale and Leilani Neumann, attributed the death to 'apparently they didn't have enough faith,' the police chief said.

They believed the key to healing 'was it was better to keep praying. Call more people to help pray,' he said."
Here's more info on "Christian" Science.
