He was the medic and the fireman One of those who passes through this tape of memories of about 23 years ago, “Gourmelon” tells the details of that night and what happened to it, “When the firefighter found the blonde woman sitting in the back seat of a destroyed car in a tunnel in Paris, I asked her to remain calm.”
He had no idea about his royal patient, but he didn’t think she was in real danger because she was conscious and her eyes were open, and he gave the woman he later knew was Princess Diana some oxygen before he got her out of the car, grabbed her hand to calm her, and told her to stay calm.
According to an interview in the British newspaper “The Sun”: “Diana asked him: What happened ?, He also claimed that there was no blood stained with her at all, and although he was seeing a slight injury to her right shoulder, he did not think that It matters.
But after only moments everything changed within seconds when she had a cardiac arrest. “I massaged her heart and after a few seconds she started breathing again. That was a relief of course because, as a first responder, you want to save lives and this is what I thought I did. “
He added: “I thought that she would live to the best of my knowledge when she was in the ambulance. She was alive and I was expecting to live, but I discovered later that she died in the hospital. It was very disturbing,” adding: I now know that there were serious internal injuries, but the whole episode It is still on my mind, and the memory of that night will remain with me forever.
Within minutes of her arrival at the Pitie-Salpetriere Hospital, Diana was undergoing surgery, but the medical team was unable to save her, and an investigation later learned that she had suffered severe internal injuries, including a ruptured blood vessel near her heart.
