A 30-year-old woman visited a Florida clinic for a cosmetic procedure and ended up dead, CBS News reports. Lattia Baumeister, who was visiting the Miami area from Chicago, stopped breathing on the surgical table at Seduction by Jardon's Medical Center in Doral, police say. She was taken to a hospital and later died.

Police have not released details about the procedure she was receiving at the time, but homicide detectives are investigating. WKMG reports that a notice on the door states that the clinic is closed due to health or safety violations. Dr. Osak Omulepu, who allegedly was the one operating on Baumeister, has had four complaints filed against him for seriously injuring patients, police say. (More plastic surgery stories.)
