If true, it was a long. long time ago. My grandfather was born in 1867 and my grandmother in 1880.

well I'm sure it was never true. I've been to wakes, and people had a few drinks but it was quiet and respectful...
although you're remidnign me of a bit in the Golden Girls comedy series where Rose, Betty White's character goes to a wake with Sophia, and says that everyone got drunk, and one of the mourners "slow danced with the corpse, but even that was oddly touching"...

I always said I wanted to grow up to be Sophia. I thought she was hilarious.

I seriously doubt it to be true also. The practice of the visitation at the funeral home with an open casket still is quite common then the funeral Mass and internment is what I've always experienced.

Indeed, I think it's time to move back to the main topic of the thread.

A short discussion on Cepe Smith's Twitter regarding the new doco about the days between Diana's death and the funeral produced this from Robert Jobson. He's talking about Earl Spencer's eulogy.

Reading through this information is hard, but it's even harder read that Diana was a bit aware of what happened.

It's incredibly sad and touching to read that Charles was very concerned about Diana and her condition. Also he always felt that Diana was going to come back to him and needing him to take care of her. I know he would've took care of her and would've nursed her back to health.

how would he "nurse her back to health?" It was apparently something he said, but whether it would have happened is anyone's guess. Wuold he have given up Camilla to look after Diana?

Why? Because most of the article seems to be based on fact. he may well have said it, exactly how it would have worked out in practice is another matter.

Its impossible to really put words into a person's mouth at the time of hearing the news of a tragic accident and that his ex-wife may have been seriously hurt. I'm sure that if needed, Charles would have seen that Diana had the very best in medical care but that doesn't mean that he would have been by her bedside 24/7 as a devoted ex-husband.

Its all moot anyways because Diana died.

I think he may have said this, but then again Mark Bolland is the person he said it ot, and he's a PR man. Still as you say, its a bit off to "put words into the mouth" of someone in such a tragic situation.
I'm sure he would have, if needed, been there to ensure she had the best medical care...just as he wnt to Paris on the boys' behalf to bring her home

Folks, what I'm saying is that I'm sure Charles would've made sure Diana received the best care possible, if she had survived the whole ordeal. He was arranging to be at her bedside, before he got the news of her death. In the end, he brought her back home.

I still have never understood the delay in taking her directly to the hospital ...they do things differently in France though.

She kept on going into cardiac arrest and the French protocol is to stop and resuscitate rather than continue and deliver a dead body to the hospital. French ambulances were set up to do that even back then, which many other ambulances in the world weren't. Different country = different protocols.

In Australia they would also have stopped when someone went into cardiac arrest to resuscitate rather than have a DOA. My mother was rushed to hospital in 2003 in this situation and went into cardiac arrest in the ambulance so they stopped for nearly 20 minutes on the side of the road - result - Mum arrived alive at the hospital, the specialist also had arrived by the time she did and she survived and went onto to live for nearly another 3 years (she was already in her mid-70s) before dying of emphaceama.

Right I know the senario...and that countries do things differently.

I've had a family member with a ruptured aorta ...if the ambulance had stopped to try and resuscitate he would of been dead. It's just odd to me that they stop when they have no way of knowing what type of internal injuries they are dealing with...instead of continuing to the hospital while at the same time trying to stabilize or resuscitate which is what I'm familiar with.

With cardiac problems here, the name of the game is "scoop and run". A lot of times where I am at, the EMS team that arrives on the scene does not had a paramedic on board and EMTs are not qualified to administer the care or medication that a paramedic can. With a paramedic on scene, there is the choice to "stay and play" meaning do what they can to stabilize the patient before transport. Regardless, all ambulances are equipped with an AED and all emergency personnel are trained in its use.

Each case is different and handled according to procedure. Diana's internal problems were beyond what a EMS squad here would be prepared to handle and most likely would have never stopped.

They could not have done CPR if the ambulance was Moving.. and she was in cardiac arrest. If they hadn't tried to stabilise her I gaher she would probably have died in the ambulance.
