Illustration of a doctor from Samu, here in Rennes. - C. Allain / 20 Minutes

It is an emergency number, with operators who are already overloaded ... However, a sixty-something man did not hesitate for three months, in 2019, to make more than 1,000 calls to the SAMU, reports the Republican Lorrain . The medical teams had obviously lodged a complaint, but that had not prevented him from continuing to harass the agents with malicious calls. He appeared Tuesday before the correctional court of Briey (Meurthe-et-Moselle).

At the helm, the representative of the Nancy CHRU explained that the individual "made remarks of a sexual nature" and "monopolized the lines of a life-saving emergency service", specify our colleagues.

The defendant finally got three months suspended prison sentence and will have to pay 2,300 euros in damages to Nancy CHRU.
