An Avengers movie fan in China has allegedly cried so much while watching the three-hour blockbuster she had to be rushed to the hospital straight from the cinema.
The 21-year-old Chinese woman, known by a pseudonym Xiao Li, was said to be watching the midnight premiere last Wednesday in the eastern Chinese city of Ningbo.
It was alleged that she cried non-stop throughout the movie.
Doctors at the city’s Mingzhou Hospital said Xiao Li had difficulty breathing when she was brought into the ER by her friends who had been watching the film with her. It was also claimed that her hands couldn’t stop twitching.
‘[After we] observed her symptoms, we believed she had been crying and gasping too much, which led to shortness of breath,’ said doctor Yuan Liyan who treated Xiao Li.
Dr Yuan said she and her team gave Xiao Li oxygen therapy and then put a mask on her face. The patient’s condition improved after a short while, the medic added.
Chinese outlet BJ News has released a short clip which is believed to show Xiao Li being treated in the hospital.
