Deadly Butt Boost
Illegal silicone injections blamed in death of British tourist.
A British tourist died early Tuesday after she allegedly flew to Philadelphia to get silicone injections into her buttocks.
Police executed a search warrant Tuesday afternoon at the Hampton Inn where the injections were administered.
Suspicions of these hotel-room medical procedures came about after a woman visiting from England allegedly died at about 1:30 a.m. after a butt enhancement procedure and was taken to a local hospital, according to court documents.
Sources say the butt injections occurred in room 425 of the Hampton Inn and the now-deceased woman complained of chest pain shortly after the procedure.
The preliminary cause of death is attributed to silicone injected into the woman's vascular system, ultimately stopping her heart, according to the Delaware County medical examiner.
The autopsy is not yet complete.
Four women from England, including the woman who died, traveled to Philadelphia to receive the butt-implant procedures in hotel rooms, court documents say.
The women stayed in rooms in the Hampton Inn which were reserved by the person who was hired to perform the butt injections.
