It was a terrifying situation for a nurse in China when a patient pulled out a knife and took her hostage.
In order to protect the nurse, a doctor, who many are now calling a hero, stepped and volunteered to be the man’s hostage if he let the nurse go.
The knife wielding suspect agreed and the doctor stepped in. Fortunately, police arrived about 10 minutes later and took control of the situation. No one was hurt during the ordeal.
The doctor who stepped up to bat is earning an enormouse amount of praise from his colleagues. According to local media reports one nurse said, ‘He is like a real gentleman. Like a God. He is quite a hero.’
The suspect originally came in to get treatment for a sprained ankle. Police do not believe he ever planned to actually harm anyone after speaking with him following his arrest.
