Police launched an investigation after a young model died while having a BOOB JOB.
Shiryl Saturnino, 29, underwent cosmetic surgery for a breast augmentation, buttock lift and liposuction on Saturday.
The pretty businesswoman and model arrived with a relative at the Icon Clinic in Mandaluyong City, Philippines, at 5pm.
But when surgeons finished the operation at 2.40am they noticed her heart had stopped beating.
They tried to resusucate Shiryl but she was pronounced dead a short time later at 3.21am.
Police are now investigating the death with devastated friends paying tribute to the ‘’beautiful person’’.
Chief Superintendent Romulo Sapitula from the Eastern Police District (EPD) said that an investigation had been started after a request from Shiryl’s heartbroken parents.
He said: ”We should determine whether there is negligence during the operation and file necessary charges.
‘’The clinic has told our police investigators that they would cooperate fully in our probe of the incident. They promised to forward their statements regarding the case as prepared by their respective lawyers.’’
Friend Che Vienes said: ”Shiryl Saturnino, a friend and my model passed away last Sunday.
”You have all your duties fulfilled, in your heart there was no guilt.
So you shall forever stay at ease and in the heavens above, rest in peace.’’
A spokesman for the clinic run by Dr Eric Yapjuangco said today (Tue) they were co-operating with police.
They added: ‘’Now there is an investigation and we also want to know what really happened to the patient.
‘’What happened is an isolated incident and the patient did not die because of the procedure.’’
