ZAMBOANGA CITY: A man, desperately pleading help for his injured son at a local hospital, stabbed a doctor and a nurse with a syringe after failing to get emergency medical attention on Tuesday. Jesus Manalo was later subdued at the emergency room of Southern Philippines Medical Center—formerly Davao Medical Center. Manalo brought his six-year son, hit by a vehicle late on Monday, and pleaded for doctors and nurses to attend to his boy, but had been ignored. He said other patients who arrived later were attended by medical staff, but his child. Out of desperation, Manalo grabbed a syringe and attacked the nurse, the doctor and other people in the hospital.
