Woman Dies After Receiving Backroom Butt Injections in NYC
Pumping parties kill. The latest person to fall victim to this illegal practice is Kelly Mayhew, a 34-year-old woman who drove more than 200 miles from Suitland, Maryland to New York on Saturday to get silicone butt injections. Kelly, who traveled with with her mother, arrived at a home in Queens, NY where the illegal procedure was performed. After she received the silicone injections, Kelly started gurgling and having difficulty breathing, her mother told police. The mother started performing CPR and told the woman who performed the procedure to call 911 — but the suspect grabbed her keys, ran out of the house and drove off in a gray SUV. When police got to the house about 6:50pm, Emergency Medical Service personnel were already performing CPR on Kelly. She was rushed to to a local hospital where she died. The suspect, according to police, wiped her social media accounts clean and is still on the loose. Kelly's mother told police her daughter underwent five previous illegal butt procedures prior to Saturday's fatal one.
