NEW YORK, Jan. 27 (UPI) -- New York City police say they are still investigating the death of a New Jersey woman during an abortion at a Queens clinic.
Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly said detectives were still looking into the death this week of Alexandra Nunez, 38, Plainfield, N.J., who suffered massive bleeding during the procedure at the A1 Medicine clinic on Monday.
"There is an investigation going forward," said Kelly, "As of yet, there's no indication of any criminality."
Sources told the New York Daily News that one of Nunez's arteries was apparently cut, causing heavy bleeding and cardiac arrest. She was rushed to a hospital where she died.
The newspaper said Nunez apparently told her family she was going in to have a cyst removed. "She didn't want anyone to go with her," said her 19-year-old daughter, Daisy Davila. "I made dinner and lunch (yesterday) hoping she would come back."
