Earlier this month at a facility for the disabled in Incheon, a 20-year-old man with autism disorder died.

The food was forcibly fed by the facility, but the food went into the airway, and the parents later confirmed the accident scene and cried again.

We deliver the video at the time without covering the face of the deceased, in accordance with the wishes of the bereaved family that there should be a greater awareness of the human rights and care issues of persons with disabilities.

First of all, this is an exclusive report by Lee Hyun-jung.


On the afternoon of the 6th, a center for the disabled in Yeonsu-gu, Incheon.

An employee takes Jang Hee-won to the next room.

When he tries to feed him kimbap and tteokbokki, Jang slaps him on the cheek and refuses.

Another employee joined in and caught Mr. Jang, who was running away, and forced the gimbap into his mouth.

After suppressing Jang trying to get out of his seat, he even feeds him tteokbokki.

In the end, Mr. Jang ran away to the next room, and he wanted to sit on the sofa and collapsed.

The parents rushed to the emergency room to hear the news of the accident and heard words like a rip-off.

[The late Jang Hee-won's father: (Doctor) shows the brain CT, saying that it has been more than 30 minutes since the heart stopped and oxygen was not supplied to the brain. (Swollen brain, no wrinkles) It's just like an egg white. I was in despair when I saw it.] In

Mr. Jang's prayer, tteokbokki rice cakes and gimbap with a size of 4-5 cm were found.

It is said that the mother had told her son not to eat kimbap because he hated it so much that he was terrified.

[The late Jang Hee-won's father: I am so angry when I think of the image of the child holding him and not even waking up. It's really hard to close my eyes.]

Jang, who was continuing treatment for life-sustaining, eventually passed away on the 12th.

Parents want to know why they have to send their son this way.

[The late Jang Hee-won's father: I was born with hypoxia (I lived with a disability), so how do I die from hypoxia? Parents can't even protect this. We are all sinners.] The

center said, "There was a mistake," and "I apologize to the bereaved family" as to the reason for feeding Mr. Jang the food he didn't like.
