A plumber was arrested after he managed to work as a gynecologist at a hospital.

31-year-old Anton Yarin of Russia, who is a certified plumber and a volunteer medic, managed to fool hospital medical staff and patients into believing he was a qualified gynecologist.

Video from the hospital shows the married father of one child wearing a white doctor’s coat while interacting with women and at least one underage girl at a hospital in Pervouralsk.


According to police, Yarin originally arrived at the hospital looking for a job as a plumber, but he managed to change into medical clothes and he walked around to introduce himself to other gynecologists and surgeons.

According to reports in Russian media, none of the patients he worked with lodged complaints against the imposter, and, horrifyingly, it took staff at the hospital "several days" to realize that their newest member of staff was not what he claimed to be.

Nikolay Shaydurov, chief doctor of the hospital, said that Yarin was a patient in the hospital so he knew the names of many doctors.


“He was very confident we believed he was a new doctor,” officials said.

"He wandered around the hospital with impunity pretending to be a qualified doctor," a Russian newspaper reported.

The police were called after the secret was uncovered and Yarin
was arrested.
