Princess Diana Could Have Saved In Time For Her Jubilee

This is the “death crash sensation”.

The paper hears from Dr James Colthurst, an independent medical man. It’s been ten years since Diana forgot to put on her seatbelt, and Colthurst, 50, may not be around to mark Diana’s silver jubilee.

The time is ripe for him to tell us: “My belief is that had Diana been moved more quickly, the surgeons may have had a better chance.”

Dr Colthurst was not at the crash scene. He was not at the hospital. He did not operate on Diana. But he knows. And he tells us: “Her injuries of course were very serious, but there were delays in addressing those injuries that, to my mind, could have been critical.”

Always good to get a second opinion; better, of course, to get it while the patient is still alive. But things do not always go to plan. And not every doctor has a decade to cogitate and deliberate the facts.
