Townsville Father of Three has Died After Being Restrained in Hospital

A Townsville father of three has died after being restrained at a north Queensland hospital.

Lyji Vaggs voluntarily went to his local hospital’s mental health unit multiple times on Wednesday seeking to be admitted, instead he was turned away due to a lack of beds.

Vaggs has bipolar disorder and schizophrenia and informed hospital staff that he was hearing voices.

Security staff restrained an aggressive Vaggs until police arrived, he was injected with anti-psychotic drugs, at which point he stopped breathing.
