This is just heartbreaking.
27-year-old model and successful TV actress Pamela Baris do Nascimento tragically died on an operating table at Green Hill Hospital in São Paulo, Brazil, while undergoing liposuction on October 19. The hospital, however, did not report Nascimento’s death until October 29.
The model had had liposuction twice before, but this time something went very, very wrong — she died of internal hemorrhaging, possibly due to a punctured liver. The details, however, are murky, as her death went unreported for so long. Her family’s lawyer believes that Nascimento’s death was caused by malpractice, and Júlio César Yoshimura, the surgeon who performed the procedure, may face manslaughter charges.
Nascimento was studying biomedicine and had a promising career ahead of her. Our hearts go out to her friends and family.
