Death during a "live" surgery

The doctors are being accused of losing concentration while they interacted, and argued with, the audience:

The investigation panel said it cannot be denied that the operation was planned and managed with “show-like elements,” noting that the hospital picked an operation with a high mortality rate.

The panel also said the chief surgeon might have been distracted because viewers were free to ask questions and argue during the surgery.

Doctors at the remote site voiced objections concerning the methods of the chief surgeon, who argued back while carrying out the operation.
