His uncle had a backache and the ambulance was a long time coming. That’s why a man in Steinheim an der Murr came up with a plan – and paramedics and police were on site immediately.
Because he didn’t want to wait so long for an ambulance for his uncle, a man pretended to be a murderer. According to the police, the 50-year-old said on the phone that he had stabbed his uncle. Several patrol cars, an ambulance and an ambulance immediately set off for Steinheim an der Murr north of Stuttgart.
Once there, the emergency services found that the crime was fictitious – the uncle only had back pain. After the two men had waited an hour for a doctor on Saturday evening, the nephew thought up the murder out of impatience.
According to the police, the 50-year-old now has to answer for pretending to be a criminal offense, and the investigators are also checking whether he has to pay for the operation.
