DEATH – A drama that arouses consternation. At 84, photographer René Robert died of hypothermia after lying on the ground for several hours in the middle of Pariswe learned a few days ago, without the slightest intervention from passers-by, visibly indifferent to his fate.

This Tuesday, January 18, this Swiss photographer, internationally renowned for his photographs about flamenco dancing died on the floor of a busy street in Paris, as related RTL. It was probably following an illness, when he was leaving his home for a walk, that the octogenarian fell on the sidewalk before remaining nine long hours, inert and without the slightest help.

An “excruciating death” according to the journalist and friend of the photographer Michel Mompontet who reported on Twitter the last moments of René Robert. “In hypothermia, he could not be brought back to life. For 9 hours no passerby stopped to see why this gentleman was lying on the sidewalk. Nobody”, he was indignant on the social network.

As he says, it is a homeless who came first to check the state of health of the photographer lying on the sidewalk of rue de Turbigo. But despite the help of this man, the emergency services were not able to resuscitate the photographer.

According to News Paris, firefighters in the capital confirmed a call at 5:30 a.m., for a man “lying on the ground, with head trauma and blood”. Taken to hospital “in absolute urgency”, his death was confirmed a few hours later by doctors.

This terrible situation inspired a comment on social networks and an editorial on franceinfo to the photographer’s friend who invited everyone to take the time to stop, if only “for a moment” to help others in this kind of situation.

Returning to the course and career of his friend, he paid him a vibrant tribute: “René Robert was a great, a very great photographer”. The journalist ended his editorial with a simple question left hanging: “La rue de Turbigo. Full Paris, the city of light, bars, restaurants. Humanity, so inhuman, and this question: how did it come to this?
