Ten Strange Facts of Princess Diana’s Death
5. Diana Remained In The Tunnel For 81 Minutes
Diana wasn’t removed from the crippled vehicle for almost 37 minutes after the crash—despite there being little to no damage to her side of the car. It was a total of 81 minutes before the ambulance she had been placed into made its way out of the tunnel and to the hospital.
Despite serious questions about his conduct at the accident scene, Dr. Jean-Marc Martino was not made to appear at the official inquiry into Diana and Dodi’s death.
Not only was this decision met with suspicion, but Dr. Martino hasn’t addressed any of the accusations of gross negligence from those who feel his actions that night were far from adequate.
Medical experts who testified in court state that had Diana been removed from the scene quicker, she very well may have survived.
