HOUSTON – The family of a local man is demanding answers after he died while under the care of a hospital in Richmond.

Arturo Martinez, a diagnosed schizophrenic, was taken in December to Oak Medical Center for observation. He was supposed to be under constant supervision, but somehow managed to get out of his room twice.

The second time he wandered onto some nearby train tracks where he was hit and killed.

The family is now suing the hospital.
