Gang Initiation Targets Nurses

Winnipeg Sun [Manitoba, Canada]

[…] A Winnipeg man's Facebook status update on Friday gained a lot of attention on social media.

"Head's up Nurses. We just got a call from the hospital and police due to gang initiation's this weekend looking to rape or stab nurses. Especially ER staff. Same staff memo at the Vic, HSC and Concordia at least. Call your unit manager before heading in and be vigilant," Robert Ihme wrote in a status that has since been shared more than 300 times.

The Winnipeg Regional Healthy Authority has been in contact with police, who have confirmed to them there appears to be no truth in the rumour, said Kat Fox, a spokeswoman for the WRHA.
