A female security guard found herself in the emergency room of the hospital she was guarding, this time as a patient, after she was punched in the face by a woman in Pasay City, south of the capital Manila on Saturday.
Fortunately, for the guard, her alert colleagues immediately collared her attacker and 22-year-old Cheryl Languing was turned over to the police who filed appropriate charges against the suspect.
Investigators said Lanquing punched hospital guard Jennifer Rosario 23, knocked her down to the floor and scratched her face with sharp, long nails.
Officer Alma Santiago of the Women and Children’s Concerned Desk of the Pasay Police said Rosario was on duty at the San Juan de Dios Hospital when a nurse asked for her assistance with a patient who was rushed to the emergency room for abdominal pains and had three companions, which included Languing.
Rosario went to the emergency room and explained to the group that it was hospital policy that a patient was allowed only one companion at the emergency room.
But Languing’s group refused to comply, resulting to a heated argument between the suspect and Rosario. However, when Rosario turned her back to ask for assistance from another hospital guard, Languing threw a punch at her sending her to the floor.
Languing also lashed at the face of the security guard and scratched her face with her nails.
Several guards rushed to rescue Rosario and collared Languing.
