Woman over ‘botched boob job’ death in Sydney

A second woman has been charged over the death of a Chinese national during a botched boob job at a beauty salon in Sydney.  

Jean Huang, 35, died in hospital last Friday after she was allegedly administered a local anaesthetic and breast fillers by Jie Shao, 33, at the Medi Beauty Laser and Contour Clinic in Chippendale on Wednesday afternoon.

Ms Huang suffered cardiac arrest during the procedure and was rushed to hospital in a critical condition but died two days later.

And now, just days after a woman who allegedly injected Ms Huang with anaesthetic was charged, alleged unlicensed nurse Yueqiong Fu has also been charged with manslaughter.

The 29-year-old – who was one of four people present during the botched surgery -will face Burwood Local Court on Friday.

Arrested on Thursday, Fu was charged her with manslaughter, using a poison to endanger life, and hindering an investigation into a serious indictable offence 

Fu was allegedly working as a nurse at the medical clinic, despite not having any qualifications. 

Her counterpart Shao, who also doesn’t have an Australian medical licence, was initially charged with causing reckless grievous bodily harm and using poison to endanger life.

But on Tuesday the Central Local Court heard she now faces an additional charge of manslaughter.

Court documents allege Shao ‘injected Jean Huang with varying amounts of anaesthetic in the form of Tramadol and Lidocaine and the restricted substance Hyaluronic acid.’

The court previously heard Shao was a graduate of a Canton medical university and a specialist in dermatology who had practised in China and Great Britain.

She had arrived in Australia four or five days before the alleged offences with two Chinese passports because her tourist visa – which expires in November – was attached to her old passport.

Shao will remain behind bars and is due to return to court on October 31.
