“I walked quietly with fifty other yellow Vests at the height of the restaurant Fouquet s. We were not with the thugs. Around 16h, while the forces of the order were visible, but at a distance, I was touched to the eye. I was immediately taken in charge by the Street Medics. For the people who surrounded me, there was no doubt, I’ve been hit by a shot from the LBD. My goggles have exploded under the violence of the shock”, said this man, who is called David B., on the website of news Channel 32.
