His mother wants to keep him alive, even if the medical professionals do not envisage any improvement. While his companion is thinking of putting an end to this therapeutic relentlessness. The death of Vincent Lambert, on July 11, 2019, at the Reims University Hospital, marks the end of this family saga but does not stop the debates in France on euthanasia, quite the contrary.
