The tragedy of the terminally ill Free State cancer patient who was raped at a government hospital has intensified. Police have confirmed that 51-year-old Magda Lombard has died.

Her family transferred her to a private hospital following the attack at Bloemfontein’s National Hospital just more than a month ago. A male nurse allegedly raped Lombard, while a female colleague apparently held her down.

The male nurse, who is out on bail of one-thousand-Rands, will be back in court on the first of next month.
