Hunan Doctor Murdered By Patient's Family

Caixin: Doctor Beaten to Death in Hunan by a Patient's Family
A patient's relatives assaulted Wang Jun, an ear, nose and throat specialist at Shaodong County People's Hospital, on May 18, the local government said in a statement on its verified account on WeChat, a popular social media app. The patient was a child injured in a car accident, a hospital employee told state-run newspaper Global Times.

The relatives first argued with Wang saying he “was not attentive enough when treating the patient," the government statement said. Then they swore at him and knocked him to the ground and started beating him.

Wang slipped into a coma while being treated and died several hours later, the National Health and Family Planning Commission said on its website on May 19.
