WESTON, Fla. – Attorneys say a South Florida woman who died during liposuction was given too much medication, including the drug that contributed to Michael Jackson's death.
Thirty-seven-year-old Rohie Kah-Orukotan was declared brain-dead after the Sept. 25 surgery, but kept on life support two weeks.
Her family's attorneys said Thursday medical experts determined the Miramar woman was administered too much lidocaine, and should not have received Propofol. Medical examiners determined that powerful anesthetic and another sedative killed Jackson in June.
The attorney for Dr. Omar Brito-Marin called the comparison to Jackson "entirely improper," and said all medication was properly administered.
