The Hungarian woman, who had been stabbed with surgical scissors by a Chinese patient in the COVID department of a hospital in Budapest, suffered such severe injuries that doctors could not save her life.
On Saturday, the 37-year-old man, who had previously also been on a ventilator, got up from his bed, picked up the dangerous, razor-sharp surgical scissors and stabbed the defenceless victim in the face and chest several times. The Hungarian woman suffered life-threatening injuries; the punctures on the woman’s head also affected her brain.
After the cruel attack, Marianna, who worked as an educator for decades, was kept alive by machines. Her students still believed in the miracle, hoping their beloved teacher would recover.
However, we received the tragic news today that the victim suffered such severe injuries that doctors could not save her life.
As the Hungarian news portal HírTv reports, after the attack, the perpetrator ran out of the hospital and attacked the security guard as well, who tried to hold him back. Eventually, police officers caught him in the courtyard of the hospital. The Chinese man did not confess to the crime and stated he did not remember anything. According to the Hungarian news portal Blikk,
the perpetrator was addicted to drugs previously; he struggled with severe withdrawal symptoms in the hospital.
The man was arrested by the court and detained in a judicial psychiatric hospital. The Police will provide information later on the case.
The family of the deceased is still waiting for answers from the hospital because they find the quantity and quality of the information service unacceptable for what happened to their loved one.
