Surveillance footage caught a teenager getting brutally attacked in an emergency room in Michigan.
The 19-year-old was checking in when the attacker ran up behind her and started punching her in the head.
The footage shows security officers and hospital employees responding quickly to the victim and the attacker, but the teen is still suing the hospital.
“She is completely blind-sided. She has no idea that she’s going to get attacked while she’s waiting at the front desk, she gets sucker punched,” said Majed Moughni, the victim’s attorney.
Reports say the teenage attacker had been discharged earlier that day and had been bothering other patients before going after the girl.
The teen’s attorney believes the attack was religiously motivated.
In a statement, the hospital said they cooperated fully in the investigation, and it wants all patients to feel welcome.
