This Tuesday in ‘the storms of life’ on RTL-TVI and RTL Play, Christophe Dechavanne met Mallory Gabsi, the Belgian who participated in Top Chef, and who continued the adventure by opening a restaurant in Paris.
The 25-year-old has been through a few storms in his life, but the most significant was the loss of sight in his right eye. He confided in how it happened. It was a hazing while working in a restaurant. “Last day of the week, everyone was a bit tired, but it was their last day. The big hazing, like every trainee, something innocent at the base“, explains Daniel Soru, friend and witness of the accident.
Flour, eggs… nothing dangerous. “And then there, a bad product, at the wrong time, which is thrown away by one of our colleagues”. Mallory had time to shield his face, and he took it all in the right eye, luckily not from the front.
“It turns out that in the bucket was not clear water, but professional extractor hood remover“, continues the mother of Mallory in the storms of life.
Cries, tears, panic… and hospital, in Antwerp, where he will be treated as well as possible for “keep alive” his eye, even if he sees only light today, and nothing else. But he keeps hope “in advances in medicine“: transplants could repair this organ.
