Princess Diana asked ‘oh my God what happened’ in final moments, says fire chief – .


In her final moments, Princess Diana asked “oh my God, what happened?” Said a fire chief.
Sergeant Xavier Gourelon, who was one of the first rescuers to arrive at the Alma tunnel on August 31, 1997, said he stayed with her and held her hand in an attempt to calm her down.

He didn’t know who he was caring for until after helping her get into an ambulance, a colleague told him he had taken care of the Princess of Wales.

Diana lost consciousness in the ambulance and was later pronounced dead in hospital.

Her boyfriend, Dodi Fayed, and Mercedes driver Henri Paul were killed in the crash. Diana’s bodyguard, Trevor Rees-Jones, was the only survivor.

Mr. Gourmelon told the Daily mail that when he arrived at the scene he saw Mr. Rees-Jones, who appeared to be “very agitated” and in need of medical assistance.

He also saw a doctor crouched down next to Diana, who was “moving and talking”.

Rescuers attempted to resuscitate Fayed as he was removed from the car, and Mr Gourmelon said he remained with Diana in the back seat.

“She spoke in English and said, ‘Oh my God, what happened?’ I could understand this, so I tried to calm her down. I held his hand, ”he said.

He said she had a shoulder injury, but he could not see any other injuries.

Diana was then fitted with a cervical collar and a breathing mask, then covered with a metal isothermal blanket.

Mr. Gourmelon said his breathing was normal and his pulse was “thin and strong enough”.

After helping her transport her to an ambulance, a captain told her he had just helped the Princess of Wales.

“He tells me who she is and then, yes, I recognize her, but at the time I didn’t,” he said.

Frédéric Mailliez, a doctor on leave who was driving in the opposite direction and stopped when he saw the wreck of the Meredes, explained how Diana was “seriously injured” but still alive.

He took some medical supplies from his car and went to help him.

“She was the most beautiful of women and she had none [serious] facial injuries, ”he said.

He spoke to her in English and told her that he was a doctor and that an ambulance was on the way.

Diana would later die from serious internal injuries in hospital, despite surgery.

An investigation into Diana’s death in 2008 revealed that she was unlawfully killed, with paparazzi photographers and her driver to blame.
