Young mum Naomi Musenga, 22, died from a heart attack just hours after phoning Strasbourg’s ambulance service complaining of severe stomach pains.
She rang the emergency services because she thought she was dying only to be told ‘you’ll definitely die like everyone else’.

In a weak voice Musenga told the operator that she was ‘going to die’ in a three-minute phone call in which pleads for help because she’s ‘very ill’ and in a lot of pain. But the operator tells her: ‘You’ll definitely die one day, like everyone else,’ the BBC reported. Musenga was also told by the anonymous operator during the phone call on December 29: ‘If you don’t tell me what’s going on, I’ll hang up.’

The operator ignored her plea but rather gave her the number of SOS Médecins asking Naomi to call for a doctor saying she can’t help her. Musenga managed to call for a doctor but had to wait for five hours until she was rushed to hospital by ambulance, where she suffered a stroke and later died of multiple organ failure.
