0 The Pins of DEATH By The So-Called Accupuncturist, RUSSIA

A Russian woman died of pain-induced shock after a self-educated acupuncturist stuck a needle in the wrong spot on her back. The man has been sentenced to 18 months of prison, after which he plans to continue his healing career.

The 38-years-old policewoman came to the acupuncturist to relieve backache. Tamara Popova had suffered constant pain since a car accident several years ago, which had damaged her spine, reports.

Doctors advised her to visit a local acupuncturist, one of the few in the city of Tomsk, Siberia.

In spite of the fact that Viktor Zubkov had neither a Medical diploma nor a license to practise acupuncture the woman signed up for a course of treatment.

After several sessions of acupuncture, Tamara complained to her family that instead of feeling better she seemed to be getting worse.

“I feel like I could die of pain on the doctor’s table,” she told her sister.

The relatives remembered her words as prophetic when they got a call from the distressed acupuncturist who said Tamara had just died.

The paramedics who arrived at the acupuncturist’s office found the woman dead on the massage table, and blamed pain induced shock as the most probable cause of death.

Tamara’s family took the case to court, and the acupuncturist was sentenced to one and a half years in a penal colony.

At the end of the term he plans to go back to his medical practice.
