Sydney, May 17 (ANI): Former Bundaberg Base Hospital chief surgeon Dr Jayant "Death" Patel was so annoyed when his request for a critically ill patient's ventilator to be turned off was not followed that he threw a childish 'tantrum' in protest.

The Courier Mail quoted prosecutors as saying that, Patel wanted the patient off the ventilator so that he could perform oesophagectomy on Garry Kemps another patient.

When Dr MartinCarter, Patel's Bundaberg colleague, was asked by prosecutor Ross Martin, how he would describe Patel's demeanour Dr Carter replied, "If I'd seen it in a child, I would have called it a tantrum." (ANI)
