How did Dodi Al-Fayed and Henri Paul leave the Alma tunnel?

The formal story is how lady Diana and Dodi Al-Fayed were both in the backseat of the Mercedes, when Henri Paul drives the car into the Alma tunnel in Paris in 1997. Bodyguard Trevor Rees-Jones sits in the passenger seat in the front (right), with behind him Diana.

Then the accident happens. There should be four people in the car. We are told how Dodi Al-Fayed and Henri Paul are considered dead almost immediately. We are also told how Diana remained in the backseat. Rees-Jones was injured but screaming for help (so alive).

The first to arrive on the scene is Dr Mailliez, who just passed by in his car when it happened. He says he sees four people in the car, and he immediately thinks Henri Paul and Dodi Al-Fayed are dead. Having worked for the fire brigade as an emergency doctor, Mailliez was able to call the emergency services dispatch centre directly and give an initial medical assessment. He gives the blond woman in the back oxygen to help her breath. She is waving around with her arms, so he wants to calm her down, he says. Then he phones for help, asking for two ambulances that are fully equiped.

The Daily Mail has published the transcript of the call made by Dr Frederic Mailliez treating Princess Diana to a Corporal Bourdon in the dispatch room of the Paris fire service at 0.26am on August 31, 1997 (link): 
Cpl Bourdon: Fire brigade, Hello.
Dr Mailliez: Hello, it’s Dr Mailliez, there’s been a serious accident with at least three people seriously injured, but I’m not sure where I am exactly. It’s on the embankment.
Cpl Bourdon: You are on the Alma Bridge, aren’t you, by the Place de la Concorde?
Dr Maillez: It’s before that, before.
Cpl Bourdon: Before it?
Dr Mailliez: Oh yes, we’re before it.
Cpl Bourdon: You say that there are people seriously injured. What does that mean for you?
Dr Mailliez: There are one or two who appear to be dead and two others seriously injured. I can’t tell you any more than that. 
Cpl Bourdon: OK.
Dr Mailliez: We’ll need at least two ARs. (The court heard that ARs are ambulances equipped for resuscitation). Cpl Bourdon: We’re on our way, we’re on our way.

To the right a picture of the car. I still see no reason why they needed the roof taken off, in order to take her out of the backseat area, but I might have missed something here. In the pictures above we saw, how both the doors on the right side of the car, can be fully opened. The door where Diana was sitting even seems without a scratch.

Next, the photos show us how Diana is lying across the backseat area. She is in the car and the roof is off. There is no sign of Dodi Al-Fayed. Where did the bodies of Dodi Al-Fayed and Henri Paul go? Normally during an accident, ambulances are requested for the number of people involved, no matter what state they are in according to bystanders/witnesses. Here we only see Diana (or someone who looks like her). If an ambulance had already arrived, it makes no sense to take Dodi Al-Fayed first, as according to witnesses, he was dead. Moreover, when they are able to take out Dodi-Al-Fayed, they can also take out lady Diana, unless she is pinned in the car. There is no mention of that. It does not look that way. If so, taking off the roof of the car does not help.

I still have many questions. One of them is: Where did Dodi Al-Fayed and Henri Paul go?
