Dental visit ends with boy's death
Just minutes after 10-year-old Marcos Tirado received anesthesia at a Harlingen, Texas, dental office, he was rushed to the hospital. The Lamar Elementary School fifth-grader died two days later. It's a pain no parent wants to endure: the loss of a child who's too young to be gone. It's a hard reality for the Tirado family. He was undergoing a tooth filling at Harlingen Family Dentistry off Dixieland Road. "Every time there was a procedure there was a lot of precautions that had to be done, the time we took him to the dentist, the doctor said it was a simple procedure, but obviously is wasn't." said Marcos Tirado Sr. Marcos had a medical condition called Treacher-Collins syndrome.
