California Man Dies While Getting Wisdom Teeth Removed
A 25-year-old California man named Marek Lapinski died after going in for what should have been a routine procedure to get his wisdom teeth removed. Lapinski apparently went into cardiac arrest after receiving propofol- the same medication that killed Michael Jackson - during the surgery.
An autopsy is being done to determine the exact cause of death. Lapinski was a founding partner in Total Third Dimension, a company that develops thermal and night vision equipment for the military.
