Porn star suffers heart attack during breast enlargement

Police announced Thursday that the doctors who performed the operation were being investigated for possible treatment errors.

Cora, 23, was in an induced coma in an intensive care ward and her condition was considered grave. It was her sixth breast augmentation surgery to go from F to a G cup, daily Bild reported.

Evidence of a possible offence was provided to police by a paramedic. Medical equipment and medications were seized by police at the scene. Expert medical investigators had been called in.

“By the end of the week, we will in all likelihood begin preliminary proceedings over negligent bodily harm,” said state prosecutor Wilhelm Möllers.

Last year, Cora, from the Hamburg district of Rahlstedt, became famous as a member of the 10th season of the reality programme Big Brother. She spent 43 days in the Big Brother house. She received the award for “Best Amateur 2010” at last year’s Venus erotic industry trade fair.

According to Bild, the young woman wanted her increase the size of her silicon breast enhancements from 500 grammes to 800 grammes each. She went to the Alster Clinic, a plastic surgery clinic in Hamburg.

A paramedic filed a report to police that a resuscitation had been performed either too late or incorrectly according to the paper.

Police spokeswoman Ulrike Sweden told the paper: “The state police are investigating the surgeons and the 54-year-old anaesthetist on suspicion of negligent bodily harm.

Cora’s agent, Daniel Schiemann told Bild: “She suffered a second heart attack in the ambulance.”

The doctors face up to three years’ jail if they were to be found guilty of such charges.

It seems a pity that many women seem to find it neceesary to make unnatural changes to their appearance in order to find fame and fortune. The TV stations that encourage this pander to men (and women?) of the lowest intelligence but are watched by young people who believe this is the 'fix' they need to be successful in life.

Porn star? Yeah right. She is a prostitute, which is a well known fact in Hamburg, and the enlargement is for getting even more Johns. But that aside maybe it's time to check those "clinics" out more carefully.

Ok, I'm really done now, you guys (the local) have ceased to be a legitimate and serious news source.

Like Fox or Bild, you were just looking for a chance to flash some 'titties' across the screen. This is seriously pathetic. In what way is this information important?

I seriously recommend that those of you trying to build a career in journalism get out while your name is relatively untarnished.

Having just seen the article on the peeing policewoman, am in a poetic stupor. Look Cora is pointing to her heart how poignant ! (trust me it is definitely there below all the silicon I mean blubber) lol.

wow she is a hooker ??, really .Dang another plus for Hamburg... Bet half the footballers are on their knees praying for her "speedy" recovery and licking their chops

She had two heart acttacks and you blame the surgeon, poor guy... my heart would jump out and bite me if i put the strain of the equivalent weight of my laptop on my chest.

To all the Conscientious objectors, feminists, tree hugers etc, i know i know i am a neanderthal, but i luvvvv it .lol

This isn't the first time she has ended up in the hospital because of her career choice. She almost suffocated a few years ago when she tried to break the record of most blow jobs given in one day. She tried for 200 and collapsed after the 75th. It's a shame. Praying for a speedy recovery, and a change in her approach at life.
