Maryland Woman Dies In Queens Basement After Butt Lift Goes Wrong
The victim's mother says her daughter was healthy and had five previous butt enhancements.
A 34 year old Maryland woman died Saturday in a Far Rockaway, Queens basement after a butt lift surgery went haywire.
Kelly Mayhew and her mother drove from Maryland to a New York basement apartment that also doubled as plastic-surgeon's office where the procedure took place.
According to the New York Daily News, Mayhew had difficulty breathing and began gurgling after the bogus doctor injected her with silicone. Mayhew's mother demanded the doctor help save her daughter's life, instead, the suspect grabbed their keys and sped off in a gray SUV.
Mayhew's mother called 911 herself and when the police arrived, the paramedics had already begun performing CPR. Unfortunately their efforts weren't enough. After being rushed to nearby St. Johns Hospital, Mayhew was pronounced dead.
Mayhew's mother said her daughter was healthy and had five previous butt enhancements. A preliminary autopsy was returned inconclusive. Detectives are still looking for the suspect.
