Please alert the fire department.

It's a death.

It looks like an accidental death.

First, find Park Yong-ha.

Yes, ma'am.

Do you know what happened?

What did you see?

Dad chased me.

Dad beat me so I ran away.

And Grandma chased me.

Then she fell into the sea.

I ran away to avoid

getting beat up.

You saw her fall in the sea?

Dad beat me.

So I ran, and Grandma chased me.

Said she'll kill me.

Were you here with your grandma?

Did you...

Did you do something?

Dad beat me.

I ran so not to get hit.

You told me not to let him beat me.

But when Grandma got on the bike

to get me, she fell in the sea.

I was so scared of the sea.

Okay. It's all right.

It's Yong-ha.

What took you so long?

What did I tell you?

I told you not to ride that bike.




You fucking bitch!

That bitch attacked me yesterday.

She had wild eyes!

I heard you left home,

and your mother too.

The girl came to my house

after her father beat her.

Why blame the girl

when you were out drinking?

I saw her acting up before I left!

She ran to the chief scared for

her life, after you beat her.

You're not making sense!

From what I see,

alcohol is the problem.

What shall we do?

Take her to the morgue?

We don't know how she died.

We need... what you call it!


We need an autopsy.

Do you even know what an autopsy is?

They cut her open,

and take out all of her organs.

Do it!


Everyone, clear out now.

- Mom!

- Everyone go home.

She was heavily intoxicated with a

blood alcohol content of 0.2%.

And she was in the early stages

of Alzheimer's disease.

We believe she shouldn't

have been operating a vehicle.

We find the cause of death

to be drowning

as a result of careless driving.

Sign here with your thumbprint.

Does the girl need to sign too?
