SANTIAGO (Reuters) - A 14-year old Chilean girl who suffers from cystic fibrosis has made an emotional plea to be allowed to die, filming herself asking President Michelle Bachelet to authorize her euthanasia.

In a video that media said had been uploaded to her Facebook page on Sunday, Valentina Maureira said from her hospital bed: "I am asking to speak urgently to the president because I am tired of living with this sickness and she can authorize the injection to put me to sleep forever."
