From Daily Mail via L’Officiel magazine: “…Sergeant Xavier Gourmelon was on duty at dawn on August 31, 1997. On that day, he did not know that Princess Diana was the one involved in the accident.
In testimony via the newspaper Daily Mail, Gourmelon said he knew it was something serious when he arrived at the scene which was surrounded by many doctors. The team first removed Fayed and then tried to remove Diana.
He said: “After [Fayed] was removed, I was left with the passenger. She spoke in English and asked 'My God, what happened?' I understood that, so I tried to calm her down. I held her hand.”
According to Gourmelon, those were her last words. She didn't say anything else until she went to the hospital.
Xavier said she was apparently fine, with steady breathing and a strong pulse, with only an exposed shoulder wound but no other visible bruises. However, after arriving at Pitié-Salpêtrière University Hospital, she succumbed to internal injuries…”
