Dr. Frank Ryan, the plastic surgeon who scooped out Heidi Montag’s back and turned her into an inside/out Barbie, died in a Jeep accident in Malibu yesterday afternoon. Dr. Frank was only 50 years old.
TMZ reports that Dr. Frank and his border collie Jill were driving along Pacific Coast Highway when for whatever reason his Jeep went over the side and landed on the rocks. The Ventura County Fire Department and lifeguards tried to save Dr. Frank, but he was pronounced dead at the scene. Jill was found in the ocean and is being treated for serious injuries at an animal hospital.
Just a few minutes before the accident, Dr. Frank Tweeted a picture of Jill with the message: “Border collie jill surveying the view from atop the sand dune.”
Since Heidi Montag can’t physically push out tears, she cried via Twitter about the death of her doctor:
