 Usher's Wife Suffered a Heart Attack While Being Anesthetized for Cosmetic Surgery: Reports
Usher's wife suffered a heart attack while being anesthetized for cosmetic surgery "but was revived in less than a minute by heart massage," say reports. Pop singer Usher's wife Tameka Foster had a heart attack before undergoing plastic surgery in Brazil.

Ellen Dastry, spokeswoman for plastic surgeon Silvio Sterman, confirmed that Foster suffered a heart attack while being anesthetized, "but was revived in less than a minute by heart massage," reports Usmagazine.com

She was then placed into an induced coma before being transferred into an intensive care unit "to avoid unnecessary complications," Dastry added.

Foster checked into the Sao Rafael Hospital on February 6 for liposuction.

A representative for Usher said that she was in "stable condition after suffering complications from routine surgery."
