(Scroll down for video) Children and nurses are angry after someone stole a PlayStation from the oncology hospital, according to police in New Zealand.

Wellington police said that they are investigating the theft that occurred at the Wellington Hospital oncology ward, where kids like 9-year-old Angus Little are treated for cancer.

Little is currently getting chemotherapy after being diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor. He gets chemotherapy once a week, and each session lasts for about 3 hours.

While getting the treatment, Little loves to play Minecraft on the PlayStation. Little is very angry and sad as the PlayStation was stolen along with the castle he built on Minecraft.

Hospital staff said that they cannot understand how someone can steal from kids who are suffering from cancer.

A spokesperson for the Wellington Regional Hospital, said that it was nearly impossible to pinpoint the thief as thousands of patients and visitors are on the premises each day.

Luckily for Little, a good Samaritan donated a new PlayStation for the hospital’s oncology ward.
