He was taken care of by firefighters, in serious condition. A man suffered a cardiac arrest on Tuesday on the sidelines of a CGT demonstration at Cannes train station, following the explosion of an agricultural bomb. This rally was organized at 10:30 am against the pension reform in France, outside the perimeter prohibited by the prefecture on the occasion of the film festival.

This elderly man felt unwell after a very noisy explosion. "In a serious condition, he was first taken care of by a CRS medical team who performed a cardiac massage. He was then taken care of by firefighters, "said a police source, without further details.

Power cuts

About 160 people, according to the prefecture, gathered in the morning in front of the Cannes train station, before a speech by the secretary general of the CGT Energy, Sébastien Menesplier. At about the same time, a power cut occurred at the central police station, said the police source, who said it had been "momentary". Earlier in the morning, Enedis management had foiled an attempt to cut power at the Cannes-La Bocca power plant, which supplies much of the city of Cannes, she said.

At the end of April, the CGT Energy had evoked "energy disturbances", targeting in particular the Cannes event, in other words projectors that could go out for lack of power.
