A 69-year-old New York City nurse who was attacked by a patient last week is said to be fighting for her life in the Brooklyn hospital.

Authorities said around 4:30 p.m. Friday Evelyn Lynch was in Kwincii Jones’ private room at Brookdale University Hospital removing his catheter when he knocked her to the ground then began kicking her in the face.

After he was finishing assaulting the nurse, 40-year-old Jones ran into a bathroom where hospital security held him until police arrived.

Meanwhile, Lynch was rushed to Kings County Hospital where she underwent brain surgery.

As of press time she was listed in critical condition.

A motive for the attack was not available at press time.
