Child with face tumor Matadi Sela Petit has died


The child Matadi Sela who was flown to the US to remove a massive tumour from his face has sadly died.

According to TMZ, he suffered a “rare and unpredictable genetic reaction to anaesthesia” during surgery causing his death.

The 8-year-old who is from the Democratic Republic of Congo died Friday night after complications from his delicate surgery at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in L.A. … according to The Dikembe Mutombo Foundation.

The foundation says … “We are devastated by the loss of Matadi and our heart goes out to his father, his mother and the rest of his family, and all his old and new friends.”

TMZ earlier reported that Matadi went into cardiac arrest during his surgery and was transferred to the ICU, but we didn’t know why his operation wasn’t completed. Now we know it was due to his bad reaction to the anaesthesia but despite the best efforts of his medical staff … he was never able to recover.

May his soul rest in peace.
