A family is asking questions after a 24-year-old man died following an oral surgeon’s operation to remove his wisdom teeth late last month.
Marek Lapinski, of Murrieta, Calif., went into cardiac arrest during the common surgery, according to medical records provided by a friend of the family.
Lapinski died three days after the March 21 surgery at a clinic run by Dr. Steven Paul in Temecula, Calif.
Thomas Keiser, the friend of Lapinski’s family, called the death a “senseless tragedy.” more to this article at NBCNews
