Anderson Cooper is a well-known journalist for CNN, and is known for his intense dedication to reporting, often putting himself in dangerous situations to cover the story as best he can. In this particular case, Cooper puts himself in a life threatening situation.
Anderson and his news crew were one of the first major news crews to get into Haiti in 2010 to report what was happening in the country after the horrifying earthquake. As riots broke out, Cooper and his crew found themselves in the middle of a riot where people were throwing rocks, and slabs of concrete.
As the situation worsened, a Haitian boy was hit in the head with a piece of concrete. Anderson Cooper recognized that the boy had been hit, picked him up, and carried him to safely as blood gushed down the boy’s face.
After carrying the boy away, another group of Haitians took the boy and his condition went unknown. It seems that we need more journalists like this, ones that are willing to sacrifice making a story in order to save a life when needed.
