A U.N. Command helicopter later transported him to the Ajou medical center, according to South Korean officials.

Lee says those who plan to go to South Korea rather than settle in China are punished more harshly by North Korea. He then fled across the JSA, with fellow soldiers chasing and firing at him, South Korea's military said, citing unspecified surveillance systems installed in the area.

"He has at least six gunshot wounds on his body and the penetrating wound in the abdomen is the most serious", the doctor, Lee Cook-Jong, told reporters, AFP said.

"Someone would steal food because they were hungry and they would be beaten to death. of 3,000 inmates on average, about three a day would die".
