The 23-year-old, who was born Carolin Ebert, according to German newspaper Bild, fell into a coma on Jan. 11 during surgery at a clinic in Hamburg, a spokesperson for the state prosecutor told CNN. Two doctors have since been charged with negligent manslaughter.

According to Sky News, Berger was having 28 oz "of silicon injected into each breast" and was going from a size 34F to a 34G.

BBC News reports that she may had suffered from two heart attacks during the procedure.

According to German newspaper Bild, she was put into an artificial coma following the procedure. CNN reports she died on Thursday.

A statement from the clinic obtained by CNN said the doctors were "extremely upset and deeply regret the death."

"As matters stand currently a defect in the anesthetizing device can be ruled out," the clinic statement said. "The claim that the monitoring could have given readings other than the actual vital functions of the patient has nothing to do with the facts and has no connection to reality."

The doctors in question are cooperating with police, the statement reads.

According to Bild, Cora appeared in over 100 pornographic films and the German edition of the reality TV show Big Brother.
