Take your doctor’s advice; it just might save your life.

A man who visited the hospital for an apparent head injury and then left against the doctor’s wishes was later found dead in a drainage ditch on the side of the road Monday afternoon in Houston.

Police are still awaiting autopsy results, but they say the victim showed no sign of physical trauma. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

According to police, the victim visited Lyndon B. Johnson Hospital earlier that day with an accidental head injury. After receiving partial treatment, he left the hospital against the advice of the doctor. He was later found dead in the 7200 block of Lockwood.

An autopsy will be performed by the Harris County Medical Examiner’s Office to determine his actual cause of death.
