An injured Russian man identified as, Vladimir, was filmed walking out of the hospital for a cigarette with a knife sticking out of his back.
The 34-year-old could be seen walking out of the hospital in Kazan, Russia, in only his briefs.
His bare back had blood stains while a knife stuck out of the middle.
Nurses on duty tried to reason with him to go back to his bed but he refused.
He clutched onto a rail for support and told them that he was going out for a cigarette, but it was then pointed out that he didn’t have any cigarette.
The temperatures outside were -10°C and there was snow on the ground, yet, Vladimir was still attempting to venture outside in nothing but his underwear.
The man only agreed to return to his bed when he was told,
“you are about to die.”
A doctor reasoned with him saying:
“Let’s go. Have an injection and you go home.”
He eventually agreed, the knife was removed and he is now in a stable condition in the hospital.
