His narration reads in part:

“I was looking at them, confused because I don’t even know the patient in question. The next thing I knew, the leader stoned his phones at me. We were just three doctors there. We stood up from there and went inside."

He concluded that they had broken into the room where they were, and they were firmly held. They were too confused to talk because the attackers were many. They finally managed to break away from the A&E and left for another ward.
