Trevor Rees-Jones News


Trevor Rees-Jones (also known as Trevor Rees; born 1968) is the former bodyguard for Dodi Al-Fayed. He was badly injured in the car accident that killed Diana, Princess of Wales, Dodi Al-Fayed and the driver Henri Paul. Because he suffered a head injury in the crash, Rees-Jones does not recall particulars of the accident. He allegedly survived because he was wearing a seatbelt. However, a December 2006 Operation Paget technical examination said that none of the occupants of the car was wearing a seat belt at the time of the collision.

Rees-Jones suffered serious head injuries in the crash. His face was flattened: numerous bones were broken or crushed. His face was reconstructed from family photographs by a world-class maxillofacial surgeon, Luc Chikhani, using about 150 pieces of titanium to hold the bones together and recreate the original shape. Within a year, his face was nearly back to normal. None of the expenses for the surgery were paid for by Rees-Jones. The cost of his hospital care was borne by Mohamed al-Fayed, Rees-Jones's employer at the time of the crash and the rest was paid for by the British National Health Service (NHS).

Following recovery from the injuries sustained in the crash, Rees-Jones moved to north Shropshire, and for some time worked in a small family-run sportswear shop in the town of Oswestry, on the Welsh border.
