Paris (dpa) - France's most famous coma patient is dead. After stopping treatment more than a week ago, 42-year-old Vincent Lambert died in the morning, as his nephew François Lambert told the public broadcaster France Télévisions. Previously, there had been a dramatic legal tug-of-war over the cessation of the artificial diet. The tragic case has not only torn Lambert's family, but also split France. He had an accident about ten years ago in a traffic accident. He had been in a kind of coma since then.
