Man Sues After Beating Caught on Video at Hospital

Posted: Updated:

WILMINGTON, Del. (AP)- A man is suing after a videotaped incident in which he was beaten and kicked while restrained at a Delaware hospital.

Terrance Carter claims in the complaint filed in Delaware Superior Court that the four private security officers at Wilmington Hospital assaulted, neglected and intentionally inflicted emotional distress in February. In the suit against Christiana Care Health System, the hospital's parent organization, Carter alleges that guards used excessive force, violating state and federal laws.

A newspaper obtained video that shows a man handcuffed to a wall being struck while four guards try to restrain him on a bench.

System spokeswoman Karen Browne says the hospital took swift action in firing the guards and is hiring new leadership.
