A 2-year-old died tragically after being rejected from 13 different hospitals. 


The toddler and his grandmother were crossing a busy street in Banwoldang and were hit by a tow truck. The victims were immediately transported to a nearby hospital but there was no surgeon who could operate on the toddler because all the surgeons were already in surgery. 




The 2-year-old was sent from one hospital after another, but after exhausting all the options -- 13 locations in total -- the victim had to be flown via helicopter to a hospital far away. While on the helicopter, his heart stopped 3 times, and he passed away the following day.

The other victim, the child's grandmother also did not survive. 


One of the hospitals that did not accept the 2-year-old explained, "We did not have any operating tables open; we had to ask help from other hospitals...each hospital had their reasons why they couldn't operate on the child."

    Man if something like that was to happen in the America it wouldn't be tolerated. People would be protesting like mad and GOSH this makes me so mad. My condolences to the family who was hurt during this tragedy.

    This is really sad...I remember in one of the kdrama...I cannot remember the name of, they refused to operate on a child that got transferred a few times because her chances of survival was low and they didnt want to take responsibility and chance of getting sued for medical malpractice.

    Some reports said there were no hospital beds, which is likely one of the bigger and busier hospitals, while others did have beds open but did not however have any surgeons. There isn't something wrong it's everything right. Korea isn't the same as the rest of the world when it comes to healthcare-If there was a surgeon then there would have been an operation. Don't be so quick to assume.

    don't doctor usually treat the urgent patient first? i had a hunch that they thought the child is a lost case and don't want to take responsibility..
