A doctor, who fought to save Princess Diana’s life after her shocking car crash, finally revealed what really happened after the tragic incident in his care.
Princess Diana was loved all over the world. She was down-to-earth, funny, a caring mother, and a wonderful role model for many.
The tragic car accident in Paris that ended Diana’s life became a moment no one will ever forget. Diana was mourned all over the world, and her legacy will last forever.
The doctor said that he tried “everything possible” to get her heart beating again. Princess Diana died in a car crash resulting from a high-speed paparazzi chase. According to the Daily Mail, Dr. MonSef Dahman was a young duty general surgeon at the Pitie-Salpetriere Hospital in Paris when he was called to the accident and emergency (A&E) department to treat a “young woman” in the early hours of 31 August 1997.
For decades, the death of Princess Diana has been the subject of numerous conspiracy theories, ranging from probable to outright ridiculous. One of those theories is that Diana was “allowed to die”. That one now seems to have been put to rest, by none other than the doctor that treated Diana following the accident.
Dr. Dahman has opened up about the incident for the first time. In his exclusive interview, he firmly put to rest the theory that Diana was allowed to die and detailed how his team worked tirelessly trying to save her life for hours.
“I was resting in the duty room when I got a call from Bruno Riou, the senior duty anesthetist, telling me to go to the emergency room,” Dahman said. “I wasn’t told it was Lady Diana, but [only] that there’d been a serious accident involving a young woman.”
To begin with, Dahman wasn’t even supposed to have worked that night. As a young duty general surgeon at the biggest hospital in France, his wife was pregnant at the time. They were due to go on holiday, away from Paris, but since his wife was pregnant with the couple’s second child, they decided to stay.
More details of the doctors’ efforts to save Princess Diana’s life from AWM:
When he got to Princess Diana’s room, his assistant was “in a corner because she was a little overwhelmed by the gravity of the moment.” Riou was also present. “That too was a sign of the special importance. And he was personally taking care of a lady who was lying on a stretcher, with a lot going on around her.”
At the time, Dahman was thirty-three. He was told that the woman on the stretcher was indeed Princess Diana.
“It only took that moment for all this unusual activity to become clear to me,” he said. “For any doctor, any surgeon, it is of very great importance to be faced with such a young woman who is in this condition. But of course, even more so if she is a princess.”
The doctors tried everything to revive Diana but were unsuccessful.
“We tried electric shocks several times and, as I had done in the emergency room, cardiac massage,” said Dahman. “Professor Riou had administered adrenaline. But we could not get her heart beating again.”
The medical team refused to give up.
“We fought hard, we tried a lot, really an awful lot. Frankly, when you are working in those conditions, you don’t notice the passage of time,” he said. “The only thing that is important is that we do everything possible for this young woman.”
