French photographer René Robert died of hypothermia on a crowded Parisian street, as Euronews reported.

According to numerous reports in French media, nobody stopped to help or check on Robert when he collapsed on January 19 in the middle of a bustling street in the French capital.

Many sources quote a friend of the deceased, the journalist and musician Michel Mompontet, who says his friend was "killed by indifference."

According to Mompontet, the 84-year-old photographer fatally succumbed to hypothermia after lying in the snow for six hours. No one paid attention to the man until 5 a.m., when a homeless man walking by called for help.

"I would really like to know the homeless person who, at 6 am, was the only human being to call for help," Mompontet later tweeted.
