Baldwin teen dies during dental surgery
A 17-year-old Baldwin High School student died Wednesday during a routine dental procedure.
Officials say Luis Mora was having his wisdom teeth removed by Dr. Joseph Como when he began to show signs of cardiac arrest and respiratory distress. The doctors performed CPR and immediately called 911. Mora was declared dead at Winthrop Hospital. Officials say there were no signs of any foul play and that Como has an unblemished record. Police say Como is cooperating fully with the investigation being performed by Nassau police and the medical examiner.
