Runaway cow attacks patients in hospital waiting room


This is the shocking moment an escaped cow charged into a hospital waiting room and attacked patients.

The bizarre incident was captured by CCTV cameras at the Hospital San Rafael in the municipality of San Luis in the Colombian department of Antioquia on February 13.

The video shows the cow strutting into the waiting room and causing immediate panic among the unsuspecting patients.

A group of frightened locals ran to a corner for safety but were followed by the cow that slammed into them.

The cow fell several times allowing some patients to escape but left an injured woman trapped on the floor as two men manage to grab the animal’s halter and pull it away.

However, it charged at the woman again before exiting the hospital and the woman looked for help.

Local media reported that nobody was seriously injured in the incident as the trampled woman was treated for minor contusion and pain while the rest of the patients did not seek treatment.

The rogue cow also damaged two motorcycles at the hospital’s entrance and several chairs in the waiting room.

Local media reported that the cow’s owner went to the hospital to apologise for the incident and asked about the woman’s health as well as the material damage, but it is unclear if he plans to pay for anything.

There have been no reports on the police opening an investigation.
