Patient Dies in Dental Surgery WEB

DÜSSELDORF, Germany: A patient died after a tragic fall in a dental clinic. The 45-year-old woman, who had been treated under anesthesia because of a mental disability, woke up dizzy in the recovery room, stumbled and accidently slammed her head against an aquarium.

The patient hit her head against the aquarium with such a great force that it burst. The fall seems to have happened as the patient was still under the influence of the aesthetic. A shattered piece of glass severed the woman’s carotid artery and she subsequently bled to death within a short period.
The police are investigating the incident.
