Mum dies on operating table during ‘low-budget cosmetic surgery’ in Mexico
A loving mum-of-two died on the operating table as she underwent surgery for a low-budget tummy tuck at a clinic in Tijuana, Mexico.
Keuana Weaver died on January 29 during a procedure at a plastic surgery clinic in Tijuana’s Las Torres.
The 38-year-old is understood to have told family she was thinking about having some "work done," but did not tell them she was jetting off to Mexico.
Renee Weaver, Keuana’s mum, said her daughter’s death has left her "heartbroken" and is demanding to know what happened.
She added that she only discovered Keuana, who was the mother of a 13-year-old and a 1-year-old, was in Mexico when she received a call letting her known her daughter had died.
The San Diego United Tribute claim Renee was sent a letter from the clinic offering to refund the $6,700 (£4831) cost of Keuana Weaver's surgery.
Keuana is allegedly one of three women who flew to the city for cosmetic work at a cosmetic surgery clinic and failed to leave unharmed.
A second woman, whose identity is unknown, is said to be on dialysis for kidney failure.

The Medical Board of Baja California referred questions to the Asociación Mexicana de Cirugía Plástica, Estética y Reconstructiva, A.C., a professional organisation of plastic surgeons, which the doctor is not a member of, it is claimed.
In 2015, inspectors with Mexico’s Federal Commission for the Protection against Sanitary Risks shut down a clinic run by the same doctor for allegedly "failing to meet the minimum requirements to operate legally."
