The firefighters do not always fall so grateful people. Saturday evening, those of Toulouse were called route de Narbonne to come to the aid of an injured person. When they arrived there, they found themselves facing a patient with a bleeding wound, uncooperative and under the influence of alcohol. The latter, armed with a knife, threatened them.
The five rescuers managed to control while waiting for the arrival of the police. When law enforcement took over, the 25-year-old managed to head butt one of the officials.
