Deer runs into NC hospital, corralled by employees

CONCORD, N.C. — A deer ran into a Concord hospital Thursday after crashing through a car windshield, according to WSOC-TV. 

Hospital officials said the young male deer came out of a wooded area next to Carolinas Medical Center Northeast.

Officials said the deer then crossed the street and jumped over a hedge, landing on an employee’s windshield.

“It hit my car and runs into the kitchen where I’m working,” Jane McManus said.

The deer entered the hospital through a loading dock and proceeded down a hallway into the kitchen.

“Everyone was going crazy,” McManus said.

Hospital employees were able to corral the deer in a utility closet and hold it until animal control officers could arrive.

The deer was tranquilized and transported to another wooded area in the county.

“It’s an insane story,” McManus said.
