Pamela Harriman, the American ambassador to France and national co-chairwoman of Bill Clinton’s 1992 presidential campaign, remained unconscious Tuesday after suffering a brain hemorrhage on Monday, officials said.
Harriman, 76, did not recover consciousness after fainting at the Ritz Hotel, where she had been swimming. A statement from the American Embassy said she was in serious condition at the American Hospital of Paris in the western suburb of Neuilly. Her son, Winston Spencer Churchill, a British member of Parliament and grandson of the wartime British prime minister, was at her bedside.
In recent months, Harriman had been trying engineer a breakthrough to end perhaps the testiest period of French-American relations since she was named to the post in March 1993.
