Crash on deleting duplicated XML tag

Indesign CC 2019 (Version 14.0.1)
Mac OS Mojave on Mac mini (Late 2014)

Hello, I have a document ready to import XML data, with existing XML structure and tagged elements in page.
Afterwards I import XML data into XML structure and then duplicate (copy and paste) text frame that contains a table with an image placed into a cell table.
If I try to delete resulting duplicated XML tag, application crashes.
Same result if I duplicate (copy and paste) XML tag directly.

These are the steps:

1) Open document with prepared XML structure and tagged elements in page.
2) Import XML file into XML element.
3) Duplicate text frame that contains table (copy and paste)
4) Delete duplicated "Table" tag

The problem seems to be in copying XML element (or text frame) and them paste it: resulting XML structure of the element is incomplete for the cell that contains the image.

Nothing happens if I import XML into new document without structured and tagged XML.

Expected result: delete XML duplicated tag
Actual result: application crash
