(Scroll down for video) People were shocked to see a heartless doctor punching a heart surgery patient, who later died, and they are calling on police to charge the doctor with a crime, according to video uploaded to the internet.
Russian Police said that a highly respected anesthesiologist was fired shortly after he brutally beat a heart surgery patient that allegedly caused the patient to die.
The stunning images, which show a brutal attack on a heart surgery patient by his physician, was recently released. After the heart surgery, the patient was apparently calling the doctor names and being rude to him, prompting the doctor to attack him.
“As soon as I entered the room with my team the patient started calling me several derogatory names. I just lost myself,” Doctor Votyakov, said.
“We spent a lot of time with his surgery, it was a very difficult procedure, and he did not thank me at all for it. I was also extremely tired after the long procedure. I got carried away, and I hit him several times,” Votyakov said.
The doctor offered an apology to the family of the patient. The patient died shortly after the beating.
