Alarming footage has emerged of a hospital patient in Russia dying after being punched by the very person who was supposed to be helping him.
A man in a hospital outside Moscow, in Belgorod, was punched in the head by a doctor, who is now facing charges of involuntary manslaughter.
The incident took place on December 29th, although the footage has only just gone viral, with an official police investigation launched.
The reason behind the violence from the doctor has not been made immediately clear, but there are claims the patient was also displaying threatening behaviour towards other hospital staff.
Reports allege the patient had been violent towards nurses earlier, kicking one of them.
He was then punched by a doctor, but tragically died later.
