An anesthesiologist from France killed patients in order to save them laterBy Pictolic https://pictolic.com/en/article/an-anesthesiologist-from-france-killed-patients-in-order-to-save-them-later
A doctor, without any doubt, is a noble profession. Many doctors save human lives every day and are happy to realize this. There are some doctors who do not have enough heroism in life and they kill patients themselves, so that later, if possible, they can "pump out" and enjoy the fanfare of fame. This is not a joke — this is the story of the anesthesiologist Frédéric Péchier, who lacked the happiness of the rescued patients, but who quickly found an original way out.
The French prosecutor's office accuses 47-year-old Frederic Peschier of 24 cases of poisoning patients in two clinics in Besancon, nine of which ended in death. To date, 17 episodes of harm to patients have been proven, which occurred from 2008 to 2016.
The investigation believes that Peshier specifically injected patients with substances that caused cardiac arrest, and then came to their aid and, if possible, saved their lives. As we can see, success was not always waiting for Frederick, but he did not despair — there was no shortage of patients. But with successful resuscitation, the doctor basked in the glory and praise of his colleagues.
The vain anesthesiologist attracted the attention of the police back in 2017. Then in the private clinic where he worked, two suspicious containers with liquid were found, which turned out to be a mixture of potassium solution and lidocaine. The analysis showed that when administered to a person, the substance can cause cardiac arrest.
Law enforcement officers found that people of all ages became the victims of Foot traffic. The youngest was only 4 years old and this boy just had his tonsils removed. Despite the most simple operation, the child's heart stopped twice and Frederick successfully started it both times. The oldest patient of the doctor, who had the same problems during the operation, was 80 years old and, fortunately, he also survived.
The state prosecution cannot establish the exact reasons for Peshye's actions, so the only version is his desire to distinguish himself in the professional circle. It is clearly noticeable that the number of those rescued increased significantly during the period when a serious conflict arose between the anesthesiologist and his colleagues.
It's funny, but the court found no grounds for keeping the doctor in custody and he is waiting for his fate to be decided at home. The evidence against Peshier is only circumstantial and he has a good chance to go unpunished. To the claims of the relatives of the victims of the strange doctor, the judges answer that there is no reason for the detention of the accused — for two years he never interfered in the course of the investigation, did not try to escape and did not put pressure on witnesses and victims. Moreover, he will no longer bring harm to patients — the anesthesiologist was suspended from work and deprived of his medical license.
