96-year-old woman dies after attack in nursing home

Public prosecutors in the East Flemish town of Dendermonde are looking into the death of a woman in a nursing home in the city.

A 96-year-old woman from Wetteren, who was suffering from dementia, was attacked by a nurse after the nurse had been insulted.

It was the woman's granddaughter who first discovered the injuries a day later. The woman's body displayed bruising and strangulation marks.

Prosecutors will now examine whether the woman's death is linked to these injuries. The nurse has been suspended.
