Egg bound

I have two year old hens. This morning one was showing symptoms of egg binding. We put her in warm water for 20 minutes two times. Decided to check vent and wife inserted finger with vegetable oil. When she did the hen blew out liquid poop and died immediately. Can anyone tell me why this would happen? Thank you.

    How long had she been showing symptoms? they can die if not treated early enough but ive never heard of one passing because of a vent examination so its nothing your wife did wrong.
     of course theres every chance she wasnt egg bound but rather suffering from an internal infection or a tumour
    what colour was the poo?
    Sorry you lost her
     what breeds do you have there?
