Boy, cut by hotel sink, bleeds to death
A 14-YEAR-OLD boy bled to death after a sink in the toilet of a Malaysian hotel room broke and he suffered a deep cut on his thigh.
The schoolboy, known only as Ming Shen, was washing his hands when the freak accident occurred at about midnight on Saturday. He was in his friend's room watching badminton on television with several other people.
He managed to open the toilet door to ask for help from his friend, a businessman, 35, known only as Wei.
"I called the hotel front office and asked them to call an ambulance. Numerous calls were made to the hospital," Wei said. "The ambulance finally arrived some 40 minutes later, but it was already too late, as Ming Shen had bled to death," he added.
