Hospital staff immediately rushed inside the ward to stop the f‌ight‌in‌g. The elderly man did not sustain any injuries, the Daily Mail reported.
He was sent home the next day and was accompanied by his daughter, who was his main caretaker at the hospital. The elderly father was supposed to be discharged from the hospital after treatmenton Saturday when the incident happened.
In a WeChat post, the Pingshan pol‌ic‌e department confirmed that they located Li in his home at 2 a.m. on Sunday and brought him to the station for further inve‌stiga‌tion. It is still unclear why the son started verbally and physi‌ca‌lly a‌b‌us‌i‌ng his father.

Netizens expressed their anger over Li’s actions at the hospital.
The man is going to regret this when his own son treats him the same way,” one Weibo user said.
What a cruel person. Such an embarrassment to Pingshan,” another user wrote.
