Jean-Baptiste, 92, beaten by a drug addict in Paris: "I don't know if he will recover"


Jérôme Watel recounts the ultra-violent attack suffered by his father, Jean-Baptiste, 92, on September 9 at Porte de la Villette (19th century).

It is almost 4 p.m. on September 9 when Jean-Baptiste Watel ends his daily walk in the Parc de la Villette in Paris (19th century).

A native of Pas-de-Calais, now living in the Oise, he returns to his son's house, at Terrasses du Parc, opposite the City of Science and Industry, where he lives every other week.

At 92, this retired policeman moves with difficulty, with a cane.
