Girl injured during dental visit is dead

HONOLULU (AP) - A 3-year-old girl who suffered massive brain damage after being sedated by Kailua, Oahu, dentist has died.

Hospice Hawaii officials issued a statement Saturday confirming that Finley Puleo Boyle had died. According to Hospice Hawaii, the girl's parents said she died Friday just before 9 p.m.

Their attorney told KHON-TV that they plan to file a wrongful death lawsuit. Attorney Rick Fried Jr. says a negligence lawsuit filed last week against dentist Lilly Geyer and Island Dentistry for Children is now moot.

Finley's parents say she saw Geyer on Dec. 3 and was given high doses of Demerol, hydroxyzine and chloral hydrate, as well as nitrous oxide.

An attorney for Geyer said he would not comment.
