Jean-Luc Reichmann

The confidences of Jean-Luc Reichmann on his motorcycle accident which almost cost him his life!

In the 1980s, Jean-Luc Reichmann was the victim of a serious road accident. While riding his motorbike, he was hit by a car and was seriously injured.

A tragedy that he evokes in the documentary Jean-Luc Reichmann, an extraordinary destiny, which will be broadcast on Saturday July 2 at 11:15 p.m. on TF1. In this short film, the host evokes his childhood, disturbed by the teasing of his classmates because of his point of nose, his career, his strong ties with Marie-Laure, his hearing-impaired sister, but also the day when his life has changed.

While he is riding a motorbike, a man knocks him down with his car. The shock is so violent that he is ejected from his two-wheeler and must undergo several operations. He even spent a year in the hospital before recovering. While he did not think he could walk again, Nathalie Lecoultre’s husband fought to the end to treat his very serious injuries. In addition to a burst spleen, the presenter also had his left arm completely severed.

In the TF1 documentary, Bruno, his brother and his mother, Josette, return to this accident that they will never forget, just like Jean-Luc Reichmann who confided in with modesty and emotion. I experienced it as a fight, to fight and continue to hope, he confides. When my mom says I never once complained, I never realized it.

I knew that I had nothing to complain about but to win this fight, but like hundreds of thousands of French people who are fighting against disease and the scourges of everyday life. It was a fight and somehow I won it.

A great victory for the 61-year-old animator who has not given up his passion for motorcycles, even if he still has some scars. He is also returning from a road trip to the United States with his partner. Not that his mother was afraid of him. I tried calling him and texting him. It went very well, he says. A great relief for the one who always keeps an eye on her son.
