A doctor was stabbed by her patient at a big hospital in Beijing, the second in the string of attacks against doctors rocked China in less than a month.

The attacker wearing a mask reportedly fled after he stabbed the victim’s neck using a knife for unknown reasons, and is still on the run by the press.

Xing Zhimin, an otolaryngologist, has been out of danger after the emergency treatment, according to the official CCTV, quoting a spokesman with the hospital.

Police are investing on the case, the report said.

In late March, a hospital doctor in northeast China’s Heiilongjing Province died in an alleged knife attack by a patient, with three other hospital staffs were injured.

Police captured the alleged attacker, a 17-year-old man named Li Mengnan, when he was receiving emergency treatment as he tried to kill himself following the attack.

Li was suffering from ankylosing spondylitis, a chronic disease that causes inflammation around the spinal vertebrae. He told the police that doctors at the hospital had a terrible attitude and "deliberately rejected" treating him.

Wang Hao, 28, who died in the attack, had reportedly just received admission to study a doctorate at a Hong Kong-based medical university.
