Porn star dies after heart attack during breast enlargement

The 23-year-old had been in a coma for nine days after complications during the surgery to increase her breast size from an F to a G cup. She died on Thursday, spokesperson for the Hamburg state prosecutor’s office Wilhelm Möllers confirmed.

Prosecutors continue to investigate the 54-year-old anaesthesiologist and the 49-year-old surgeon who performed the operation on suspicion of negligent homicide.

“We will conduct an autopsy,” Möllers said, declining to give further details in the case.

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.

Media reports last week said evidence of a possible offence was provided to police by a paramedic. Medical equipment and medications were seized by police at the scene and expert medical investigators had been called in.

According to daily Bild, the young woman wanted to 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.

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

The sad thing here...is that the German government will now drag out a bunch of experts and start talking about government regulations over bust enlargements. Some expert will demand that women are to be limited to one size-up enlargments and then some national debate will carry on....with folks sitting there on Sunday night's political chat show....talking about how the government needs to make regulations to limit busts. Old guys will sit up till 9:45 and watch the political discussion and then start talking to their 70-year old wife about getting such an enlargement. The whole nation will go into debate over how big....is big?

tragic. no one should perish because of medical incompetence but it takes on an added sadness when it is someone so young and with so much life ahead of them.

[I am not as callous as the previous post, really!]

'Cora', was simply a member of the cattle (a human, which is a colourable man, a ward of the State, the BRD), who used cattle-medicine (sub-standard procedures). Looks like she made low-grade porn, besides.

When people start waking up to who they are and practising true self-government, these problems largely go away, as people stop treating themselves and others like meat. Unfortunately, there are a lot of cattle who read this comment, and do not like the idea of self-responsibility to the fullest extent possible. They would rather some corporate agents intervene (the BRD is a for-profit corporation with unpublished shareholders, likely the same people who own the FED, see dnb.com).

This unwillingness, to manage one's own affairs, leads to chains of irresponsibility that come to haunt those who receive the irresponsible medical treatment: NOTE: Cora's doctor/surgeon was LICENSED under a scheme under the BRD.

Put two and two together.. The BRD is a cattle-management system. People who die under it are considered, as Kissinger, a mouthpiece of the bankers said, 'Useless eaters.'

Cora is busy now answering for what she choose.

So many things wrong here, not the least of which is our cold twisted entertainment society that uses human beings like objects to enrich themselves. We also have a young attractive woman with apparently no sense of self or self love. A naive stupid person who would let others tell her what to do without any sense of true purpose, self determination or apparently self preservation.

"Cora is busy now answering for what she choose."

just taking a wild guess here, you are saying she went to hell for being a porn actress in her life?

I was wondering when the first judgemental moralist bible-thumpers would start homing in on this news story...

I have seen some of her porn movies, she wasn't that great, but let's show some respect.

This whole situation is sad.

Yes, if there is really medical malpractice here, it should be pursued.

However, I think the real issue is the whole situation. Setting aside personal freedoms, why does anyone need to have 6 elective surgeries, especially the continual increase in breast size. Not only should her own motives be questioned, but why would a competent doctor agree to keep doing this?

At some point, the medical profession needs to supply some common sense, even if the patient doesn't have any. Cosmetic surgery is seldom "necessary" and the dangers therein are just as real as any other operation.

This brings a whole new level of meaning to "dumb blonde."

I'm callous I have a problem with nasty people like this?! Really? Geesh I guess maybe ALL women should go out and make themselves into "porn stars" now because that's the way to be! People like that chick are exactly why men treat their wife/girlfriend like a sextoy- because it's parently okay to.

And by the way- the term "porn star" is a euphemism for the word whore. :|

porn destorys women, family and society. The parasites who create porn are cowards who hope to destory the country from within by destroying women which is the primary key for a healthy family. Porn has to be abolished. Porn makes women into the product for the lowest of parasites on this earth. Abolish porn. Value women for their hearts and create a healthy strong country to help mankind once more.

Well put teutonic-knight. While this whole case over the young woman's death is ironically tragic on a Shakesperian scale it isn't the shameful pornography industry which will be held to account...the movie rights are I'm sure already being sold portraying the industry as full of gentle, caring folk bravely soldering on in the face of societal misunderstanding (diametrically opposed to the realities)...the attempt to regularize "Sex Trade Work" will at the current pace soon mean you'll be required to report to a pimp for raping to get your unemployment benefits and a return, at least functionally, to slavery.........
