The 23-year-old actress, who's real name is Carolin Berger, fell into a coma on Jan. 11 during surgery at a clinic in Hamburg, a spokesperson for the state prosecutor told CNN.

BBC News reports that she may had suffered from two heart attacks after the procedure.

According to German newspaper Bild, she was put into an artificial coma following the procedure. CNN reports she died on Thursday.

A statement from the clinic obtained by CNN said the doctors were "extremely upset and deeply regret the death."

"As matters stand currently a defect in the anesthetizing device can be ruled out," the clinic statement said. "The claim that the monitoring could have given readings other than the actual vital functions of the patient has nothing to do with the facts and has no connection to reality."

The doctors in question are cooperating with police, the statement reads.

The cause of death is unclear and autopsy is scheduled take place next week.
