Illegal butt injections have claimed another woman’s life in Far Rockaway, Queens; this time a beautiful employee of BET Networks.

Kelly Mayhew, a 34-year-old Maryland native, traveled with her mother to a basement apartment, where a fake doctor injected her backside with silicone. According to NBC News, her mother believed the doctor was legitimate. But when Mayhew began struggling to breathe, her mother demanded that the quack call 911. Instead, the fake doc fled in an SUV.

Mayhew was eventually rushed to the hospital where she was pronounced dead.

Now, authorities are searching for the quack who fled the scene after performing the failed operation, according to the New York Daily News.

BET Networks released a statement Wednesday, saying: “We are saddened by the death of our colleague and friend, Kelly Mayhew. Our hearts go out to her family and we extend our deepest sympathies for their loss.”

Ladies, please let this be a cautionary tale against trying to cut corners when it comes to plastic surgery. It’s not worth your life. Save up the money you need for a legit surgeon who knows what she is doing, or get some squats popping.

Such a beautiful girl, gone way too soon and for absolutely no reason.
