Dental procedure leaves little girl dead


A 3-year-old Hawaiian girl, who's been in a coma for 32 days after visiting a dentist, has died.

The family's lawyer says Finley Boyle visited the dentist for 10 different procedures and says she was given three sedative drugs in excessive doses.
   
The attorney also says the little girl wasn't monitored through the procedure.
    And that she left the dentist with permanent brain damage.

"Clearly, once we got the second MRI back, it was devastating -- everything but the brain stem, which the brain stem tells you to breathe and gives you a blood pressure and it tells you to breathe.  And that's why she's alive, because that was the only last bit that didn't get a lack of oxygen."
   
The family has filed a wrongful death suit against the dentist and her practice.
