and this may be the most haunting picture ive seen in my life...

Omayra Sánchez [1985]

Red Cross rescue workers had apparently repeatedly appealed to the government for a pump to lower the water level and for other help to free the girl. Finally rescuers gave up and spent their remaining time with her, comforting her and praying with her. She died of exposure after about 60 hours.

That is some very powerful stuff. I hate looking at such things becuase it makes me feel very depressed. The world is such a dark and ugly place, filled with hate and anger for too many people.

Thanks for the link. Im a huge photography fan and I hadnt seen a lot of these because most arent meant to be beautiful or pretty. Sad stuff but need to be seen.
