Princess Diana died of a tiny injury at the wrong place-Dr. Richard Shepherd!
The leading English forensic pathologist Dr. Richard Shepherd said that Princess Diana who died in the 1997 Paris car crash had a tiny injury but it was, at the wrong place.
The opinion of Dr. Richard Shepherd
The famed forensic pathologist Dr. Richard said that Princess Diana had not a large amount of injury when a car crash in Paris killed her in 1997. But the injuries were grave and led to her death.
She had just a few broken bones and a small chest injury. But there was a tiny tear in a vein of one of her lungs and it was this that caused her death. The doctor stated:
“Her specific injury is so rare that in my entire career I don’t believe I’ve seen another,”
The condition of Princess Diana during the arrival of paramedics
When Diana’s Mercedes – Benz crashed in the Pont de l’Alma road tunnel, the paramedics soon arrived on the scene. Princess Diana was, relatively stable at that time and was conscious and able to communicate. The pathologist said:
“However, the vein was slowly bleeding into her chest,”
Dr. Richard has revealed all these details in his new book called Unnatural Causes. The contents of this book were excerpted by The Mail UK this Sunday.
The deterioration in Princess Diana’s health
As an ambulance raced and took the Princess to the Pitié-Salpétrière Hospital, she gradually lost her consciousness and lapsed into a coma. She suffered a cardiac arrest. Talking further on it, Dr. Richard writes:
“Every effort was made to resuscitate her and in hospital she went into surgery, where they did identify the problem and attempted to repair the vein,”
“But, sadly, by then it was too late.”
The summary of Dr. Richard ‘s findings
Dr. Richard was called in to review the evidence in the police inquiry of 2004 into Princess Diana’ s death led by Sir John Stevens. He said that Diana could have avoided death if she was wearing a seat belt at the time of the 31 August 1997 car crash. Diana was in the back seat of the car after a night at Hotel Ritz with her boyfriend Dodi Fayed, 42. Dodi was sitting next to her and Fayed family chauffeur Henri Paul was driving the car. Diana’s bodyguard Trevor Reese Jones was sitting next to the driver. He was the only survivor of the car accident and he was the only one in the car wearing a seat belt. Dr. Richard said:
“Her initial period of consciousness and initial survival after the accident is characteristic of a tear to a vital vein. Anatomically, it’s hidden away, deep in the centre of the chest,”
“The biggest if only, in Diana’s case, was within her own control,”
He was talking about the seat belt. He concluded:
“It was a tragic accident.”
