An infusion is urgently needed, the approval process with the health insurance company is taking too long. The drug can be paid for immediately.

According to the police, the 67-year-old who was called collected all available cash and drove to the hospital - the whole time she was in telephone contact with the supposed daughter. At the clinic, the 67-year-old gave the money to a woman. The caller said goodbye a little later.
