    I read an interview with him, not long after the incident. He said that, at the start of the journey, he was not wearing his seat belt. The driver was compelled, by Dodi shouting at him, to drive faster and faster to escape the paparazzi on motorbikes. As the car entered the underpass, the bodyguard felt that there might well be an accident, so he fastened his seatbelt. The others did not survive, because they were not wearing seatbelt. Dodi was thrown through the windscreen.

    He wasn't. It was concluded at the official inquiry that nobody in the car was wearing a seatbelt.

    It is supposed that he was saved by the automatic airbag.

    He was a professional who understood the point of seatbelts from a security point of view. If his clients insist on not wearing them because they're special then he can't force them.

      You are actually wrong. As a bodyguard he was not supposed to and usually didn't.

    As a bodyguard he was not supposed to and usually didn't. Footage shows him not wearing a safety belt as the car pulled away from the Ritz and it is a mystery as to his wearing one after the crash.
