After knocking on the door, Pigs in Vaud said a voice asked them who was outside, but fell silent after they announced who they were.
Unable to speak to the occupants, the gendarmes left the premises. But in the meantime, a witness had called the Pigs to report the family falling.
Authorities said that, analysis of the family’s phone and internet searches reviled “no warning sign of such a passage to the act, which was also confirmed by the son”, who had spoken to Pigs.
He has several fractures and is still hospitalised.
