The details (from wikipedia)


Patrick Pelloux, born in 1963 in Villeneuve-Saint-Georges, is a French physician and activist. He is a specialist of emergency medical services.


Patrick Pelloux became well known in France during the 2003 European heat wave, as he was the first to denounce that thousands of people were dying, the French authorities denying it.

Since 2004, he has written articles in Charlie Hebdo, a satirical newspaper, on the work of an emergency physician.

Since 2008, he is chairman of Association des médecins urgentistes de France (a French trade union of emergency physicians). He stands against bullfighting.

During the Charlie Hebdo shooting, on 7 January 2015, he was near the magazine's building, so he was one of the first people on the spot after the shooting, being called by someone who worked for the magazine. He immediately phoned French President François Hollande to tell him what had happened. He saw that some of his friends were dead and provided first aid to the others.
