The incident, which occurred late Wednesday September 7, was reported by ABC News.
The family reported that the name of the deceased is Maria Christian, who had arrived to the Vanity Cosmetic Surgery Clinic in West Miami, where she suffered a “medical incident” that cost her life, according to the Miami-Dade police.
