He said a marshal on the job advised the teenage friends to take her to the nearby Gleneagles Medini hospital instead of waiting for an ambulance.
He said: & # 39; According to an eyewitness, the victim was bleeding badly from her nose and was taken to a private hospital by friends. & # 39;
Assistant Commissioner Dzulkhairi said that she later died in the hospital from her injuries.
The police are investigating her death and the teen's body has been sent to Kulai Hospital north of the city for a post-mortem.

Mr. Dzulkhairi added that the CCTV cameras from the center were not working at the time of the accident, so there was no video footage of the crash.
& # 39; Our checks showed that the CCTV in the sports center was not working, but the investigation is still ongoing, & # 39; he added.
The website of X-Park Malaysia says that the drivers are fitted with a crash helmet and that the go-karts have a & # 39; sturdy chassis & # 39; for the safety of drivers.
It is not yet known why the 18-year-old was in Malaysia or where she came from in Britain.
