KENNESAW, Ga. - A Kennesaw cosmetic surgery clinic is under investigation after two patient deaths this year.
Channel 2’s Aaron Diamant dug up a police report from February, which said that April Jenkins, of Savannah, died after a fat-transfer procedure.
According to the police report, Jenkins fell onto the bed and made “odd moaning noises” after awaking from the surgery. She then went into full cardiac arrest, the report said. Police said doctors worked on Jenkins for 10 minutes and then called 911.
In June, police said firefighters arrived to the clinic to find Miami businesswoman Erica Beaubrun lying in a pool of blood after a buttocks reduction with silicone implants being removed.
Police said emergency medical technicians found she also went into cardiac arrest and noted that it had been 22 minutes before fire personnel were called.
When Diamant went to the office to speak with Dr. Nedra Dodds about the deaths, but instead spoke to an office manager who said the doctor was in surgery.
The office manager told Diamant he knew nothing about the deaths and told him to leave. The manager took Diamant’s business card, but he has not heard back from Dodds.
Police have not filed any charges.
