A woman who had probably had too much of a highly disturbing toothache decided to have several teeth removed at once but what happens next is tragic.

The woman, April Walters, went to the dentist to have 16 teeth pulled out but collapsed and died in the dentist's car park.

According to Mirror Online, April needed 18 teeth pulled out due to an infection but the dentist decided to stop the procedure because of her high heart rate and advised her to visit a doctor .

But as her sister tried to help her get in the car after the appointment, the 46-year-old, who suffered from a lung condition and required an oxygen tank, began to complain she couldn't breathe.

Desperate attempts were made to revive her but April couldn't be saved and now her family are demanding answers, according to Fox 2 News.

April, who had sarcoidosis, asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and diabetes, had been cleared by a doctor to have her teeth removed despite her bad health .

Her sister Crystal Cutright took her to see Dr Rana Rabban at Southfield Dental Care in Southfield, Michigan, on Friday, where an initial assessment showed early concerns.

Crystal told the broadcaster: "Her heart rate was still 130, the dentist came in, ready to do the procedure.

"The dental assistant said 'I am waiting for her heart rate to come down.' The dentist said 'We're fine' and the procedure starts."

April, who had anxiety problems, had been turned away from the procedure before due to an elevated heart rate.

After 16 of the 18 were removed the dentist decided to stop for the day and advised April to see a doctor to get her heart rate checked.

Crystal, along with husband James, took her sister back to the car and were trying to get her into the backseat when she told them she couldn't breathe.

Believing her tank had run out of oxygen, Crystal ran back inside for help but she claims when staff came back outside to help nobody seemed to know CPR.

An ambulance was called but it was too late to save April.

Amber said: "A 46-year-old woman should not die in the parking lot of a dentist's office."

Results of the post-mortem examination are due.

Meanwhile, a GoFundMe has been set up for the family to pay for the funeral costs.
