A psych ward patient in Holland killed power to an entire hospital thinking he was solving a puzzle in Silent Hill.
Jan H., the patient, shut down power to Sophia Hospital in the Netherlands thinking that by doing so he could acquire a toothbrush that would complete a puzzle. The hospital lost power for 45 minutes, stranding some folks in elevators and forcing doctors to resort to manual efforts to keep intensive care patients breathing. Noone was hurt. (Poor Noone.)
In a trial last week, Jan H. skated on – what else – insanity. A court ruled he had “no idea of the true consequences of his deed.”
