The patient was taken to Zhongnan Hospital in China's Hubei Province after losing consciousness
A father in China asked a doctor to compensate him for damaging his son's clothes while saving his life in the emergency room.
The man was rushed to hospital after he lost consciousness due to an artery blockage. Luckily for him, the team of doctors and medical staff at Zhongnan Hospital in China's Hubei Province saved his life. But, instead of thanking the doctor, the father demanded 1,500 yuan from him.
After being shifted to a ward, the patient's father noticed that his son's clothes were cut up, a common practice in medical emergencies. According to a post on Weibo, some cash, an identity card and some other contents were also missing from the son's pocket.
The story went viral on Chinese social media platform Weibo where people criticised the man for worrying about the clothes over his son's well being.
According to Shanghaiist
, the doctor paid the patient's father 1,000 yuan and said he understood the father's worry.
"For some people, 1,000 yuan is not a big deal, but for him, it was probably very important," Shanghaiist quoted the doctor.
