Army Vet, 23, Dies When Hospital Won't Admit Him

Apple Daily, news, Posted: May 18, 2009

CHONGQING CITY, China More than 10,000 Chongqing City residents recently protested outside the No. 324 Peoples Liberation Army Hospital because the hospital refused to admit a 23-year-old man who'd served in the army and participated in the Sichuan earthquake rescue last year. The man subsequently died. The Apple Daily, a Chinese newspaper based in Hong Kong, reports that the man fell off the fifth floor of a building where he was working, and then was sent to the emergency room of the hospital. The hospital denied him admission because he didnt have the 20,000 RMB (about $2,700) fee to pay the hospital upon arrival. Two hours later, the young veteran died.
