We hear the mockery and the raw tone of the operator who did not seem affected by the groans and the pain of the 22-year-old girl. According to a report published on the website of the General Inspectorate of Social Affairs, the medical control assistant of the SAMU did not respect the good practices and the delay of assumption of responsibility of the case of Naomi was estimated at more than two hours .
