42 hours spent for catching a runaway soldier

An Army sergeant is taken by military paramedics to Dongin Hospital in Gangneung. The sergeant identified by his last name Lim, who fled with his weapon after a shooting rampage at his colleagues at a military outpost under the 22nd Infantry Division, attempted suicide on Monday, the third day after running away from his unit. During a confrontation with troops at a low-lying mountain in Goseong, Gangwon Province, Lim shot at his left chest with a K-2 rifle, but is known to be in stable condition.
