Poisoned student pronounced dead

A medical postgraduate who was allegedly poisoned by his roommate was pronounced dead by a local hospital at 3:23pm today following multi-organ failures.

Huang Yang, 28, from Sichuan Province, enrolled in Fudan University in 2010 and recently passed the test for doctoral students.

He felt sick on April 1 after drinking water from a water dispenser in his dormitory room. He went to the Zhongshan Hospital later but his condition worsened.

The hospital said he didn't see the doctor until he felt abdomen pains, and he even performed a surgery in another hospital where he was doing the internship.

Huang told doctors that he drank water in his dorm but immediately spilt out because the water tasted strange, today's Xinmin Evening News reported.

Blood tests showed a rise of transaminase in his body and the symptom of jaundice. The student then fell into a coma and was diagnosed with liver failure. Though a group of medical experts tried everything to save his life, his condition deteriorated.

Police have arrested Huang's roommate surnamed Lin, also a postgraduate student, as the main suspect of the poisoning case. No other details were given as a further police probe is ongoing.

Some people speculated online that it was someone jealous of Huang's good performance in the PhD admission test or his girlfriend who would want to kill him.

But Huang's father disagreed, saying his son got along well with others and didn't have a girlfriend.
