Surgeon tries to sell X-ray as NFT of Bataclan survivor

Imagine that you survive the deadly attack at Bataclan concert hall in Paris in 2015 and years later someone tries to sell your X-ray as NFT. Some things are just too much even for the NFT world.

One French woman was “extremely shocked” after she found out that the surgeon that operated on her tried to sell an X-ray of her injuries online.

A senior orthopedic surgeon at the Georges Pompidou hospital in Paris was revealed at the weekend to be offering an image of the woman’s forearm, showing a Kalashnikov bullet lodged near the bone, as an NFT digital artwork.

Emmanuel Masmejean faces legal action and a disciplinary charge having not asked for permission from his patient, whom he described as a young woman who had lost her boyfriend in the massacre by Islamic State gunmen at the music venue.

Elodie Abraham, the woman’s lawyer said: “This doctor, not content with breaking the duty of medical secrecy towards this patient, thought it would be a good idea to describe the private life of this young woman, making her perfectly identifiable.”

The image, which has now been withdrawn, was offered for sale for $2,776 (€2,446) on the OpenSea website, according to the Mediapart website, which first reported the story.

The attack on the Bataclan was part of a wave of shootings and bomb attacks in the French capital on the night of 13 November 2015 that claimed 130 lives.
