Probably mind blowing alarms, not only very audible but wired direct to the police stations!

There's a photo in this article although it isn't very clear.

Reporting her death

When Princess Diana died I was very young. However, my mother was just speaking of it. She said when she died they showed a news report saying she was in a car accident but still alive. Then, did another report saying she died. My mom forgot how far apart the reports. However, other people have told me (I live in the US) they just saw a report saying she died. Does anyone remember what was reported?

In Australia it was reported that Diana, Princess of Wales was in a car accident in Paris, this was then followed by a report that she was being tended to at the scene by paramedics, thirdly came a report that she was on transit to a hospital and then came the news that she had died.

The time frame between them I cannot recall..but wasn't all that long I dont think. An hour or two perhaps.

I was living in California at the time, and in the early evening there was a scrolling message across the TV screen to say that Diana and Dodi had been in an accident and Dodi had been killed, but Diana's condition wasn't known with certainty. About half an hour later, during the regularly scheduled news, they were saying the same thing. It wasn't until some time later that the news came through that she'd died. I don't remember hearing anything at the time about her only having received minor injuries, although later reports said that that was the first thing reported on the news.

At a 6 a.m. press conference at Paris' Hospital de la Pitie Salpetriere, doctors said the Princess, 36, died at 4 a.m. (10 p.m. EDT Saturday) from internal bleeding, the result of major chest and lung injuries. (News was withheld from the public for two hours, until her sons could be notified.)

I was driving to an orchid show when I heard the first report that Diana and Dodi had been involved in an accident, then not long afterwards they gave the news Dodi had died but Diana was injured but being treated and reports had been received that the injuries seemed to be not life threatening but they were waiting for confirmation of her condition. Everyone was talking about it at the show. When I left after about an hour and turned on the car radio the station was reporting she was seriously injured, maybe dead, and before I arrived home they confirmed she'd died. This was over a total period of about 2 hours, maybe two and a half. I think the report of her death was heard here at about 2.30pm on the Sunday so maybe there wasn't an embargo on the news being reported in Australia (or maybe we just ignored it.)

In video clips I've seen from BBC and such it seems like first came the report of the crash Dodi was dead but Diana was alive with what seemed like minor injuries i think I remember them mentioning a possible broken leg then later came the unofficial report of her death then I remember them saying Buckingham Palace confirmed it. I was only 6 so I had no clue about it really but this is just what I've gathered over the years of watching reports.

First reports I heard in Australia was she had a broken arm and cuts etc but was OK, however reports were very quickly updated and I think within a couple of hours of first reports they announced she had died

I don't like the sight of dead people. I remember seeing the Pope Jean Paul II, lying on a table while many mourners were passing by. I had found it shocking.
I'll always remember JFK's and Marilyn Monroe's face captured by photographers at the morgue. I honestly wish I hadn't seen those shots. It's not them; it's only flesh and bones. I don't see the utility of opening a casket exposing your emotionless, congealed face for the world to see.
I would have loved to see her face for following up information, she looked as if she was sleeping. Since she has been our princess, there is no reason why should we not see her face?

I disagree. She wasn't 'our princess'. She was a human being who had the right to have a private life and a part of her private life was her sons. She was a mother before being a Princess, Lady or whatever. Would you imagine yourself next to your mother's open casket in front of the whole world?

I WAS next to my mother's casket and no, we didn't have an open one. I don't think any of us could deal with that.

She wasn't your princess, and it's this sort of macabre fascination with every last little detail of her life, along with this peculiar feeling of owning her and deserving to know all about her, which led the paparazzi to go to such dangerous lengths to get more and more intrusive photos of her. With this attitude you're proclaiming yourself responsible for her death.

No one can stop me from saying "My princess" as this would be against the liberties and rights of men since Diana is the princess of the world.

Oh we certainly can't stop you from saying anything (well to a point, Warren would say ) , but we can come to our own conclusion that you're just a touch obsessed with the Late Diana.

No she wasn't, she was the divorced wife of the heir to the British throne. That's all she was. The rest is simply imagination and wishful thinking and it doesn't give you actual ownership rights or the right to make demands. Like I said, it was this peculiar attitude that she somehow belonged to them which drove her more obsessed fans to feel they had a right to know everything about her and to demand news and information and pictures about every last thing she did. And that led directly to the dangerous behaviour of the paparazzi, right up to and including the fatal accident.

Every one is free on earth to cherish Diana's memories and no one is allowed to remove this feeling of love attached to his or her devotee princess. No one can say that paparazzi was the cause of her accident for justice in France has not seen that and one cannot judge better this accident than the judge himself otherwise this would be fabulous. So stop putting the blame on paparazzi for has the driver not been drunk, he would have driven properly and Diana would have been alive.

Don't fight against those who love lady diana by accusing them for being obssessed and responsible of her death. As I said the monarchy is to be blamed and not the commoners. If you are angry towards this love attitude, I am sorry you won't be able to change the love one has for Diana. Just respect those feelings.
Thanks

I am not obssesed with lady diana but simply feel sad about her death caused by Camilla who stole charles from her and making her go to a relationship where she faces death during a weekend with her new lover?

No my mother is not dead and May god preserve her for ever for she will 70 years old soon. But I lost my father but could not have been to the funeral as I did not have holiday as I was working and he died thousand of miles away in a hospital where he was having his treatment for cancer .I would have loved to see his face for I love my father . Regarding Diana, as I love her too, I would have loved to see her face for a last time and the world would have loved to see her too.

Nazma, I'm sorry but if you are not obsessed, you are certainly giving a very good impression of it.

First, I wonder how you can say you love someone you (presumably, of course) never knew?
Secondly, I believe the world includes me so I don't think you can talk for people here since I wouldn't have wanted to see her face.
