85-year-old woman was killed by leeches

austriaThe 85-year-old woman from Lower Austria wanted to make “leech therapy”.

Her doctor fixed 20 leeches on the body of the old woman. Leeches should help against impaired circulations.

On the next day the 85-year-old was dead. She died because of acute anaemia. The leeches took too much blood from her.

Now the female doctor has to face a trial. She was never allowed to do such a therapy to such an old woman.

The trial is going to start on Friday.
