Incidents in Alpes-Maritimes: parties interrupted by syringe injections

Significant socio-cultural events in the Alpes-Maritimes have been punctuated by worrying incidents. The Music Festival and other festivities in Cagnes-sur-Mer suffered unexpected interruptions due to suspicious syringe injections.

Emergency doctors mobilized and festivities stop

At Cagneshealth professionals reported the presence of multiple traces of bites on the victims.

Faced with this alarming discovery, and for preventive security reasons, the party was stopped at 11:30 p.m. An identical situation occurred at Win, during the Music Festival. The festivities stopped as soon as the first suspected cases of bites appeared.

Filing of complaints and investigation

“With three people confirming having been bitten, two complaints filed, and a third probably to come,” revealed Régis Lebigre, the Mayor of Vence. He added that “blisters were noted” and blood tests are still in progress.

Even the DJ serving as host of the evening expressed his regrets over the outcome of the event, reports Nice-Matin. According to him, it is of crucial importance that any suspicious individual is reported to the organizers or authorities, to guarantee the safety of everyone at public events.
