An Argentina hospital was overrun by a group of soccer hooligans looking for a patient accused of killing a member of their group.
Thursday, at least a dozen soccer hooligans associated with the Argentina club Nueva Chicago charged into Santojanni Hospital in Buenos Aires, threatening doctors and other hospital staff, demanding that a man known as “Aldo The Paraguayan” be presented to them.
The group from the Nuevo Chicago-affiliated “Los Perales” was believed to have been instigated by the death of one of their own, Agustin Rodriguez, who was killed in a fight with a rival faction known at “Las Antenas”
Security cameras caught the scene on close-circuit television, and doctors and patients are said to be seen running and hiding from the violent group.
Aldo was being treated at the hospital for stab wounds.
Argentina has become notorious for being home to a number of soccer-related violence.
