“A good turnout was observed compared to previous editions,” said Cyrille Lefeuvre during the security point this Saturday, July 23 in the morning. In all, 54 people were taken care of by the emergency services between 10 p.m. and 4 a.m. Among them, ten were taken to the Layne hospital “for medically not serious situations”.
“We are talking about fractures, sprains, and cuts or wounds that cannot be treated on the site of the aid station, place Saint-Roch”, detailed the chief of staff of the prefect.
Wild bites have, as on previous days, spoiled the Madeleine of several hestayres. For this third night, 27 people reported. Bites were observed in eight of them. Among these people, three were killed during the night of Thursday July 21 to Friday July 22 and only realized it afterwards. The assessment of the second night therefore increases from two to five wild bites. The laboratory technician specially installed at the aid station took ten samples following these bites. The Layné hospital took care of an eleventh sample.
On the judicial side, the public prosecutor indicates that the police custody of the Landais suspected of being the source of injections has been lifted, for lack of material evidence. “The investigation is continuing. Toxicological analyzes were carried out,” explained Olivier Janson. These toxicological analyses, to be distinguished from serological analyzes (which make it possible to know whether the person bitten has been infected with HIV, or hepatitis B or C), take place when the victim has lodged a complaint, and at the request of the justice system, in order to determine the nature of the potentially injected product.
Around 5 a.m., in the area of Place Saint-Roch, a Red Cross first aider was physically attacked as she was returning home. Her service at the aid station having ended, the volunteer was dressed in civilian clothes. She found herself facing a group of men in the courtyard of her accommodation and asked them to leave. The rescuer, who suffers from a superficial injury, must be heard by the police today.
