“One of my nurses named Carina … decided on her own to perform abdominal liposuction with local anesthetic,” Mendoza said while expressing remorse over the incident.
“The result of this incomprehensible action was that she died as a result of the massive absorption of anesthetic that she administered herself.”
A co-worker was said to have alerted paramedics, who tried to revive Carina, however, she died when they got to the clinic, ‘Clinica Amper’, which is located in south-central Mexico.
Mexico has long been a country where people flock to undergo various cosmetic surgeries due to lower costs associated with procedures.
