Reblog: Firefighter at site of Princess Diana’s fatal car crash reveals harrowing details: ‘There was no blood on her at all’

“As far as I knew when she was in the ambulance, she was alive…”

It’s been 20 years since Princess Diana tragically died in a fatal car crash in Paris and, in his first-ever interview since that moment on Aug. 30, 1997, the firefighter who tried to save Diana is revealing details of that heartbreaking night.

Xavier Gourmelon, who says he’s giving the interview now because he’s now retired, spent 22 years as a firefighter in Paris and told The Sun that it took his team “less than three minutes to reach” the Pont de l’Alma tunnel, where the crash had occurred.
