A 34-year-old woman died over the weekend after a butt injection procedure went wrong in a Far Rockaway basement apartment, according to published reports.

The woman, who was identified in reports as Kelly Mayhew of Maryland, was found unconscious and unresponsive at a residence on Dickens Street at about 5:46 p.m. on Saturday, police said.

She was taken to St. John’s Hospital, where she was pronounced dead.

According to published reports, Mayhew and her mother went to the home’s basement apartment to receive butt injections from an unlicensed technician. Mayhew then had an apparent allergic reaction and became unconscious.

As the victim’s mother called 911, the technician, who allegedly rented the site and had women coming day and night, reportedly ran off in a gray SUV and is still at large.

Authorities also reportedly recovered needles filled with a substance believed to be silicone and tests are being conducted to determine the content of the needles.

A New Jersey woman who allegedly gave a Queens woman an illegal butt lift has been arrested in connection to her death, according to police and published reports.

Tamira Mobley, 28, of Wood-Ridge, N.J., is accused of injecting a silicone-like substance into the buttocks of Tamara Blaine, a 22-year-old Jamaica resident, while the two were inside of the Liberty Inn Hotel in Manhattan’s Meatpacking District on July 8, cops said.

Mobley was allegedly performing an illegal butt lift procedure on Blaine when she was killed, reports said.

Authorities found Blaine inside the room with seizure-like symptoms, according to police. She was taken to the hospital where she was later pronounced dead. At the time, the medical examiner determined the death to be suspicious, cops said.

After noticing puncture wounds on her buttocks during an autopsy, the medical examiner ruled the death a homicide in October, according to published reports.

Mobley has been charged with assault and second-degree manslaughter, police said.
