About 2 years ago I read a book by the sole survivor, Trevor Rees-Jones.  It was a difficult read.  There have been times he'd wished he had died.  Though Mohamed Al-Fayid paid his hospital bills, he blamed Rees-Jones for Dodi's death.  He tried to block the publication of his book.

 

There were many rumors that said he survived because he was wearing a seat belt.  This is not true.


WRONG.

Question from Deb484: Trevor, everyone is confused... were you or were you not wearing a seat belt?

Trevor Rees-Jones: No, that was misreported... it was proven that I was NOT wearing a seatbelt.

VAN SUSTEREN: Why weren't you wearing a seat belt, and why wasn't anybody else, do you think?

REES-JONES: I can't answer for the others; I can answer for myself. I wouldn't have been wearing one, because it's not what we practice to do, so I needed freedom of movement within the vehicle, and obviously, I was pleased for myself when it was reported I wasn't wearing one.
