Two people were hacked to death with machetes and five more injured when a bar fight broke out in Shanghai’s Pudong New Area in the early hours of yesterday morning.
Surveillance footage shot inside the Loving Heart Baby bar on Weixing West Road in Huinan Town at around 12:20 a.m. showed a group of around 20 patrons fighting, some armed with machetes. Horrific footage from inside the bar lobby shows a victim’s skull being split in half by an armed assailant. One of the injured lost his left hand in the fight, and another one was reported to be in critical condition, Shanghai Daily reports, citing STV News.
The injured were rushed to the Pudong People’s Hospital, where further violence ensued. A doctor was reportedly struck on the face and a hospital room trashed by members of the group who thought service was too slow.
Local residents said fights often broke out in the area between groups of men. So far, 10 people have been held in the case.
