Fearless Cape Town nurse disarms gunman with a hug following Somerset Hospital shooting that claimed 3 lives
In a separate story, Briefly News previously reported that a brave nurse put her life at risk to ensure her patients were treated when she calmed and comforted a gunman at the New Somerset Hospital on Saturday 7 May. Sister Diane Seale hugged the suspect and spoke to him until he agreed to be sedated.
Jaun-Paul Carl Malgas allegedly shot three people including a police officer, 32-year-old Constable Donay Phillips, before Seale entered the crime scene. She said she made eye contact with him and walked him to a cubicle where they chatted for a bit.
Seale gained his trust and he calmed down and kept him focused. She also tried to ask him to put the gun down a few times and said her main goal was to keep him away from the staff and other patients. While she spoke to the suspect a team of armed police officers positioned themselves outside the cubicle. After being sedated, Malgas was subdued by the police team.
