The Hanoi police are investigating the death of a woman at a cosmetic clinic early Saturday after being anesthetized for surgery to remove scars.

Tran Thi Thu Huong, 42, went into shock soon after being anesthetized at Linh Nhung, a private clinic licensed to offer scar-removal services, Friday evening.

She was sent to Bach Mai, a leading hospital in the capital, but died at around 1:30 the next morning.

Huong was married to a Vietnamese man, and the couple lived in Hong Kong.

The police are waiting for the family to arrive for performing an autopsy.

Vi Tien Huy, the doctor who treated Huong, has been summoned for questioning.

The clinic on Xa Dan Street, Dong Da District, has been closed since Saturday morning, and its website, thammyvien.org, has also stopped working.
