« J‘almost made the big trip’. In an interview with our colleagues from Parisian, the singer Hugues Aufray reveals to have been the victim of a violent fall last November, at his home in Marly-le-Roi, in the Yvelines. “So as not to distress the public”, he explains that he revealed last December that he had a broken wrist. At the time, he had chosen not to explain the context of his fall. Almost four months later, he claims to have “finished” with his recovery. “I got over it,” he explains.
According to the 93-year-old singer, his discomfort set in moments after having an MRI of his arteries. In order for doctors to be able to analyze the patient’s state of health as well as possible, they routinely administer iodine. This is a reagent that allows blood vessels to “appear” during such an examination. It is precisely to this compound that Hugues Aufray thinks he had a bad reaction. “I had a perfect day after the exam, but as I was going up to my room on the first floor, on the last step, I fell backwards. I had a completely black veil, I fell head first, ”he recalls to our colleagues.
This misadventure, which could have been dramatic, now seems to be well and truly behind him. From March 8, he will be back on stage in the Haut-Rhin. He will then hit the road again for about fifteen concerts. Especially since this fall has even become a distant memory since… he saw his Facebook page being hacked. “I have more than 220,000 people following me,” he complains. He hopes to get her back soon.
