A 10-year-old girl apparently suffered a heart attack while being treated by a dentist in the southern French city of Aix-en-Provence, French radio reported on Tuesday.

The girl was under local anaesthetic when her heart stopped just as her doctor, a stomatologist, made an incision in her mouth, France-Info radio reported.

An autopsy was to be performed later Tuesday to determine the exact cause of her death. The public prosecutor's office of Aix-en- Provence has opened an inquiry.
