Tragedy strikes during cosmetic procedure
What started as a routine cosmetic procedure turned fatal for a woman identified as Nayeli in Jalisco, Mexico on May 26, 2023. Nayeli went to a clinic named Especialidades Médicas Virreyes KANARI in Zapopán to undergo liposuction. However, the clinic changed the location of the operation a day before, citing damaged oxygen tanks and called her to a place called Casa Morelos in Tepatitlán de Morelos.
Rush job in an improvised operating room
Upon arrival, Nayeli was informed that she would leave on her own feet after the procedure. Despite the apparent lack of legal documents for such a procedure, an operating room was improvised at the supposed clinic. At some point during the procedure, Nayeli passed away.
Attempted cover-up and escape
The administrators of the clinic tried to remove Nayeli’s body in a Red Cross ambulance located near the scene. It was only 30 minutes after the tragic event that Nayeli’s friend, Fer González, realized what was happening. The authorities have reported the arrest of Jorge V., but Kevin and Jennifer Ángeles Hernández, who initially introduced themselves as Astrid, remain at large.
It’s a tragic reminder that even what seems like a routine cosmetic procedure can take a deadly turn. It’s crucial to conduct due diligence and ensure that the clinic you’re going to has all the necessary legal documents and is staffed by competent professionals.
