Terrible Fire Consuming Notre Dame Cathedral – A #380

Terrible Fire Consuming Notre Dame Cathedral - A #380 1

I had the joy to have visited the Notre Dame Cathedral in 2005, 2012 and 2017. Now, I find out through breaking news that this iconic building which began being built in the XII century, in 1163 and finished in 1345 (it took almost 200 years for its final construction) is being burnt during remodeling.

Needless to say that all my family, my daughter and our extended family are with the French people and Parisians.

REPORT EXCERPT 

 

A fire has engulfed the Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris, one of the city’s most iconic sights.

The fire began at 6:50 p.m. local time Monday, the Paris fire department said, and continued to burn hours later.

A French firefighter official told reporters the main structure of the cathedral has been saved and the two iconic main towers are intact and have been saved as well.

French Mayor Anne Hidalgo said that authorities were evacuating people from buildings in the area — including homes close to the cathedral.

 

REPORT LE MONDE

 

L’incendie est parti peu avant 19 heures dans les combles du monument historique le plus visité d’Europe. Après quatre heures de lutte, les pompiers semblent maîtriser les flammes.

Les deux tours de la cathédrale sont sauvées, mais deux tiers de la toiture sont ravagés. Emmanuel Macron, qui a reporté à mardi son allocution, s’est rendu sur place.

De Washington à Berlin, partout l’émotion est grande.

Beautiful Rarities to See in Paris France

Beneath the opera house, Palais Garnier, there sits a water tank, and some folks say that once a man lived there who had no face. “The Phantom of the Opera” was based upon this place. The inspiration for Gaston Leroux’s Phantom of the Opera.

Ciclista Belga Michael Goolaerts Fallece en la Paris-Roubaix 11

RESUMEN:

El ciclista belga Michael Goolaerts, del Veranda’s, murió este domingo tras sufrido un paro cardíaco tras su caída en uno de los tramos de adoquín de la París-Roubaix. Sucedió en Briaste, fue evacuado y atendido con un desfibrilador. El ciclista falleció a las 22.40 horas

Goolaerts ttenía 23 años y había sido evacuado en helicóptero a un hospital de Lille. Sobre la misma ruta, tras la caída, se le practicó un masaje cardíaco. En L’Equipe especularon con que el belga no cayó por un accidente o un toque con otro ciclista, sino por un paro cardíaco, de modo que su paro cardiorrespiratorio, que duró varios minutos, tendría origen médico y no traumático.

El estado del ciclista era muy grave. El parte médico oficial confirmó horas después que Goolaerts sufrió una parada cardiorrespiratoria y que su vida corría serio peligro, lo que desgraciadamente se confirmó bien entrada la noche con su fallecimiento.
