A female psychiatric patient stabbed a female doctor from Chulalongkorn Hospital in Pathum Wan district in the chest yesterday afternoon, the doctor is currently in a critical condition.
Pathum Wan station police rushed to the crime scene after being notified of the stabbing incident and detained the 24-year-old female patient, who had been admitted to the psychiatric clinic for treatment.
Dr. Athicha Watthana-udomchai, who was allegedly stabbed in the upper chest near the throat with a fruit knife, was operated on urgently because she lost a lot of blood.
The patient was held until she calmed down before the hospital transferred her to Somdet Chaopraya Psychiatric Hospital for further treatment.
A hospital worker revealed that the patient’s family had hospitalized her because of the stress of studying. The patient allegedly stabbed the doctor with the knife used for peeling fruit while she was being examined.
Athicha’s doctor reportedly said she is still in critical condition and urged those who have Rh+ B-type blood to urgently donate the blood to the hospital or the Thai Red Cross.
