A young Australian woman died in Mexicali following a cosmetic surgery procedure. Her family is trying to prevent her body to be cremated without an independent autopsy.
The family of Evita Nicole Sarmonikas posted a message on Facebook informing of her death on March 20, stating that she suffered a heart attack after a surgery that allegedly showed no risks, according to the Sydney Morning Herald.
The message added that the hospital in Mexicali, Baja California, where the opeation took place, denies responsibility for the fatality, and demands to cremate the body and deliver the ashes, to the family.
Ms Sarmonkias worked as a receptionist at LJ Hooker in Surfer’s Paradise, in Australia, and her former colleagues have remembered her as bubbly, bright and beautiful young woman.
Evita Nicole Sarmonikas, from the Gold Coast, Australia was admitted to “Hospital Quirurgico del Valle” in Mexicali, the capital city of the Mexican state of Baja California, on Friday March 20 while on holiday with her boyfriend.
She died on the same day, after reportedly suffering a heart attack after a cosmetic procedure performed by local Doctor Victor Ramirez.
Her cousin Nick Tsagalias and another family member reportedly told the Gold Coast Bulletin that she had gone to the hospital to receive buttock implants.
Doctor Victor Ramirez’s name made headlines in 2012 after he used a photo of the famously curvaceous reality star Kim Kardashian on a billboard to advertise his services.
Sarmonkias’s distraught family remain at a loss to understand why she could not be saved. They have highlighted how Australian Medical advice shows that ‘even in the case of cardiac arrest a healthy young body can often be brought back to life when surrounded by a fully equipped hospital and a competent medical team’.
