A woman hit a pregnant nurse Saturday at a county hospital in north China's Hebei Province over the nurse's "bad attitude" towards her ill son, People's Daily reported, citing a local newspaper Chutian Metropolis Daily.

The nurse surnamed Zhu, 38, with 20 years' experience as a nurse, was attacked at the transfusion room on Saturday when applying an injection on a 4-year-old boy who felt nervous and kept moving his hand, Chutian Metropolis Daily reported. Because only two nurses  were assigned to the patients, Zhu reportedly told the boy to "cooperate" because the nurses were "busy."

After hearing this, the boy's mother became angry and shouted at the nurse for her “bad attitude” to her child. Half an hour later, Zhu pulled the needle. The boy shouted when Zhu tore the tape off the boy's moving hand, triggering another round of curses from the mother. The mother then kicked the nurse's belly  and pulled her to the ground by her hair, Chutian Metropolis Daily reported.

Zhu sat on the floor crying, said Zhu's colleague surnamed Li, who ran to the scene with others after hearing a commotion.

Xu Lianglu, head of the urban management bureau and reported husband of the woman who attacked the nurse, has been removed from office. Police are investigating the incident, the county government said.
