Hospital Denies Negligence in Pop Singers Death

A hospital that performed abdominal surgery on Shin Hae-chul, a famous pop singer, on Tuesday denied an autopsy result implying that medical negligence might have caused his death.

On Monday, the Seoul branch of the National Forensic Service announced that a 0.3-centimeter-long hole was found in his pericardium during an autopsy, which might have resulted from the abdominal surgery.

The 46-year-old rock singer was pronounced dead at the Asan Medical Center in southern Seoul a week ago after being transferred from another hospital identified only by its initial “S” where he received the operation on Oct. 17. He had been in a coma for five days after the surgery.

Shin’s wife has filed a complaint with police against the S hospital to look into alleged medical negligence. The hospital has strongly denied the allegation.
