A wife and mother of two from Miami-Dade County, Fla., tragically died Wednesday after experiencing a “medical episode” during an abdominoplasty procedure that stopped her heart.

The procedure is also known as a “tummy tuck.”

The incident occurred Wednesday in West Miami at Vanity Cosmetic Surgery. Maria Christian, 32, police say, suffered a “medical episode” during the procedure, and her heart stopped.

Christian’s grieving sister spoke with Local 10 and accused the cosmetic surgery center of wrongdoing.

“It’s just sad that […] kids get left without a mother because they don’t do their job the way it’s supposed to be done,” said Carolina Flor. “They just don’t care. They just bring people in and out, in and out.”

“She was young, healthy, worked out,” she said. “So I don’t understand how [her heart] could have stopped.”

Christian was rushed to a hospital after her heart stopped, but she didn’t make it.
