Old- age death rage
THE death of an 81-year-old man who got into a fight with a 72-year-old fellow dementia patient at a New Jersey nursing home is under investigation by authorities.
Hudson County Prosecutor Edward DeFazio said the incident claimed the life of Andy Berthelot on Friday at the Newport Nursing Home after he apparently picked up a television set and attempted to hit the younger man with it.
The 72-year-old then struck his attacker with a plastic waste basket. Both men were taken to the Jersey City Medical Center, where the older man remained until his death later that day.
