A doctor in Russia, beat a patient to death after learning that he assaulted a nurse.
A video of the incident, shows the doctor violently beating the patient before he collapsed and died a short time later.
The attack was allegedly in response to the aggressive attack of the patient on a nurse. The video, which has since gone viral, was taken in Belgorod.
The doctor was seen removing a male patient from the room while the nurse was examining him before attacking 56-year-old Yevgeniy Bakhtin.
Bakhtin fought back and punched the doctor several times, before he fell to the floor and was punched in the head by the doctor.
The doctor, who was identified as Ilya Zelendinov, said that the patient was violent with the nurse and he kicked her.
Investigator Yelena Kozyreva said that they didn’t believe the attack was malicious. “It is a case of involuntary manslaughter,” police said.
