Drug dealing robot goes berserk

Tries to 'exterminate' the Doctor

A PATIENT and a doctor fled a robot used by the University of San Francisco Medical Centre to deliver drugs after it seemed to develop a mind of its own.

According to the San Francisco Chronicle, the robot, Waldo, has been delivering drugs without problems for ages.

Then, according to an anonymous caller to the news room, it suddenly snapped.

It apparently shot past the pharmacy and barged uninvited into the examination room in the radiation oncology department.

A doctor was examining a cancer patuent, but Waldo would not leave. The Doctor and the patent fled leaving the robot behind.

Alas, the yarn is in one of the Chronicle’s columns so does not appear to have been posted online.
