Not much to go on, but it is likely that your daughter had a ruptured bullous of the lung which caused her problem. There are many causes, but the commonest by far is an emphysematous bulla caused by smoking.

It is possible that coughing may cause another bullous to rupture, but unlikely in your daughter's case as it ruptured only six months ago.
