A young patient in a coma after a cardiac arrest at a hospital in the northern Chinese province of Fujian has suffered a brain hemorrhage.
The young man’s condition has deteriorated to critical and he is in a critical care unit at a Beijing hospital, according to a report by the China Daily newspaper.
The man, named only as Wang, was rushed to the hospital after a medical examination showed he had suffered a head injury during a cardiac accident at a local hospital, the report said.
The accident happened on January 25, when the man’s father and grandfather fell on a stone floor while climbing the stairs of their home, Xinhua news agency reported.
Wang was rushed from the hospital to a nearby hospital, where he later died.
He was 37.
Wang had been at the Beijing Hospital for Cardiac Arrests and Pulmonary Embolisms (CBES) for several months.
The CBES is a major cardiac rehabilitation facility in Fujian, which serves about 1.4 million patients a year.
According to Xinhua, the man fell on the stone floor during a fall at the CBES in Beijing’s Tiananmen Square, where thousands of people have gathered for the annual March for Life.
The Beijing Times, citing local media, said that Wang was being treated for an apparent head injury after his father and grandparents fell on their own, injuring their head and spine.
The family, which has a long history of cardiac problems, had been visiting the CBEs for the past three months, according the newspaper.
Wang’s father, who was in the crowd that fell on January 24, died at the scene, Xinjiang’s Central News Agency reported.
In the past, Wang’s mother, a medical student, had suffered aneuries and had to undergo surgery for a hernia, the newspaper reported.
But this time, Wang was in a serious condition and his condition worsened, it said.
“My father was not in a hurry to leave, and his wife did not want to take him to the surgery.
I am very grateful for my mother’s efforts, but she is too weak to do anything,” Wang’s aunt, Liu Xiaolong, told Xinhua.

Chinese President Xi Jinping visited the city on Monday and said that China would continue to support China’s national rehabilitation system, Xinhuanet reported.
