After the terrorist attack in Paris,1 France was hit again by terrorism in the city of Nice on the French Riviera on July 14, 2016. At 2233 h, a 19 tonne cargo truck crashed into crowds gathered along the waterfront to celebrate Bastille Day. This assault wounded more than 400 people and killed 86 pedestrians over a distance of about 1·1 miles. The deadly route of the truck began in front of the Lenval Children’s Hospital (LCH). Here, we briefly report the planning and operation of the medical response.
