That’s what happened to the only survivor of a car crash that killed Princess Diana
It’s a miracle that Trevor Rees-Jones survived.
In the morning on 31 August 1997, a black Mercedes S-class crashed into a concrete pillar near the tunnel Pont de l Alma in Paris. The world mourned the loss of Princess Diana after the accident. But she was not the only victim. The driver Henri Paul and Dodi Fayed was also killed that night. Survived only one passenger, Trevor Rees-Jones, Fayed’s bodyguard.
In the front passenger seat of the car Rice (which was later deleted from its name Jones) was protected by an airbag, although, like other passengers, he wasn’t wearing the seat belt. However, despite the airbag, Fig survived by a miracle.
In the accident his face was broken beyond recognition, bones turned to dust. It took 150 pieces of titanium to restore his face. The rice was in a coma for ten days while the doctors “collected” face. Rice broke her wrist and received a serious chest injury. It was a miracle that he survived.
After the accident, began to appear the rumors and conspiracy theories about why the accident occurred and whether it was possible to prevent it, and the Rice was not immune from suspicion. Critics have argued that he should not have let the Floor obviously drunk driving; he had to insist that Diana and Fayed had fastened the seat belt; he had to tell Paul to slow down. But Rice did not.
The Rice is little remembered the events of that fateful night – a head injury caused amnesia. Meanwhile, Fayed’s father insisted that Rice is lying about the memory loss to avoid charges. Due to disagreements with his father after the accident Fayed Rice resigned from the family a year after the accident. He returned to Shropshire with her mother and stepfather and began to work in the shop of his friend.
First, the Rice retained some memories of the tragedy. To date, he has given several interviews, although in 2000 he published the book
“The story bodyguard”, putting the end to this story.
One of his few memories of that night was a woman’s groan (presumably Diana). Also, according to him, he heard moaning “Dodi” (although the Rice could not exactly tell if it was real or a false memory).
The book became a bestseller, collecting 1 500 000 USD. The income from the books went on legal fees for lawsuits (he is sued Fayed’s father, who directly blamed for the tragedy of Rice, believing that he is guilty of the accident).
The Father Of Dodi Fayed
However, in 2008 during the investigation into the death of Diana was concluded that the blame for the accident was the drunk driver Floor, instead of Rice, which, according to the police, was telling the truth.
Later, Rice worked in Iraq. But, reportedly, he and his wife are now back in Shropshire, where he works as a security consultant and plays Rugby in a local team. Now he returned to a quiet life, and would like this.
