Chinese family of patient who died wound six people in Shanghai hospital rampage

Posted by Author on February 1, 2011

A family armed with knives rampaged through a Shanghai hospital , wounding six people and trying to throw a doctor out of a window after a relative died there.

Twenty relatives of the patient, identified as Liu Yonghua, stormed through the Xinhua hospital’s thoracic surgery department after Liu died yesterday, the Eastnet website and Dragon TV reported.

Family members tried to throw the department’s deputy director from an eighth floor window but other employees stopped them, Eastnet reported.
The website said one person suffered a stab wound that came within half an inch of his heart. Police detained six people.

Dragon TV showed an injured doctor being treated for his wounds in a hospital bed. The reports gave no details of Liu’s illness or cause of death or why his relatives might be angry with hospital workers.

Employees who answered the phone at the hospital’s public information department confirmed that the attack had taken place, but did not immediately release details.

Chinese hospitals have suffered a series of attacks by distraught patients or their relatives in recent years. Some have been triggered by demands for compensation after a death or complaints of overcharging or fake treatment.
