In a shocking incident a Russian doctor has been filmed on camera hitting a patient just hours after he underwent a heart surgery and later lost his life some time after the beating.
The video shows Dr Andrey Votyakov repeatedly beating a middle-aged man in his face and on his heart at the Federal Cardo-Surgery Centre in Perm in February. Dr Votyakov said that he was exhausted following a long shift and snapped after he was insulted by the patient. The patient died a few hours later.
AdvertisementApologizing for the incident Dr Votyakov said, "As soon as I came into the room with my team he started to call me various derogative names. And I just got blown away by it. We had spent so much time with his very complicated case to help him recover and he said not a single word of gratitude. And then the chronic tiredness added to it. I got carried away, and I punched him several times".
The police revealed that they are investigating the incident.
