Kiss of Life - Pulitzer Prize Winning Photo

Postby Abiding in His Word on Mon Jul 24, 2017 8:46 am

Taken in 1967 by Rocco Morabito, this photo called “The Kiss of Life” shows a utility worker named J.D. Thompson giving mouth-to-mouth to co-worker Randall G. Champion after he went unconscious following contact with a low voltage line. They had been performing routine maintenance when Champion brushed one of the low voltage lines at the very top of the utility pole. His safety harness prevented a fall, and Thompson, who had been ascending below him, quickly reached him and performed mouth-to-mouth resuscitation.

I agree! Remarkable that his co-worker was able to save that man's life while he was hanging upside down and remarkable also that a photographer caught the incident! It definitely deserved the award as did the heroic act itself!

Whew.....it takes a tough backbone to sit through all of those pictures in a row. Some were absolutely compelling and the stories associated with them are captivating and heart wrenching all at once.
