Real estate agent Laura Avila’s attorney Larry Friedman confirmed her death to TMZ, saying:
“She had the best of life in front of her until this tragic, unfortunate and senseless death. So that her death is not in vain, people should think of Laura before they look for cross-border discount surgery. They should do their homework and investigate the experience, training and track record of anyone BEFORE they sign up.”
Avila reportedly traveled to Ciudad Juarez in Mexico last month where she went for a cheaper plastic surgery. But, according to her lawyer, the anesthesia used on her was administered incorrectly and way too early.
The clinic staff allegedly left Avila under anesthesia for hours because the head doctor was running late. As a result, Laura suffered severe brain swelling and went into a coma.
