A patient in need of urgent medical care died in the hospital in Northern China after being ignored by doctors and nurses who were posing for photos, which led to an investigation.

According to Chinese media, the 84-year-old female patient, Kang Jinlian, was admitted to Wenshui County People's Hospital in Shanxi Province on July 15 after having toothache and violent gagging. After a checkup, she was then transferred to the intensive care unit of the cardiology department.

However, the patient's condition deteriorated while waiting for a CT scan. When her family members rushed to doctors for help, they asked them to wait while they were done taking group photos for a hospital brochure.

The patient's grandson, named Wu, told Shanxi Network Radio and TV Station that the family was preparing to bring her grandmother down for the scan when her condition rapidly deteriorated.

When he was about to seek help, Wu said that all doctors and nurses had left the ward to take photos for a group photo for a promotional brochure.

Images filmed by the family show 19 doctors and nurses lined up for a group photo made by a professional photographer.

Wu said he and his family tried to call a doctor four times to look at his grandmother for 20 minutes, but everyone ignored them.

& # 39; My cousin went to a doctor and was told to wait, & # 39; Wu told reporters.

& # 39; When we went the fourth time, one of the doctors grabbed our chief doctor's coat and said, "Why are you so scared? We'll look after taking this photo," he said.

The older woman died the following morning, the report said. The cause of death remained under investigation.
