Thirty-four-year-old Kelly Mayhew was pronounced dead on arrival at the St. John’s Episcopal Hospital where she was taken after a butt injection went awry.
On Saturday, Mayhew and her mother traveled from Maryland to Rockaway, Queens, to receive black market butt shots from an unlicensed person. This was done on the recommendation of a
friend of the family. Note: Friends don’t let friends get illegal butt shot injections, especially when the fake doctor’s “office” is located in a basement.
According to Mayhew’s mom, Kelly couldn’t breathe minutes after receiving the alleged silicone shots in her butt. She died in her mother’s arms after several attempts by her mother and the paramedics to perform CPR. As soon as Mayhew started gasping for breath and gurgling, her bootleg plastic surgeon fled the scene – a makeshift office – in an SUV.
“Our heart goes out to her family and we extend our deepest sympathies for their loss,” BET spokesman Jamie Owens said in a statement.
