((❤️)) A utility worker named J.D. Thompson gives mouth-to-mouth to his co-worker, Randall G. Champion, after he came in contact with a low voltage wire, 1967. Champion survived the ordeal and went on to live 35 more years and died in 2002 at 64 years old. Thompson is still alive today.
The photographer, Rocco Morabito, recalls: “I passed these men working and went on to my assignment. I took eight pictures at the strike. I thought I’d go back and see if I could find another picture”. When Morabito got back to the linemen, “I heard screaming. I looked up and I saw this man hanging down. Oh my God. I didn’t know what to do. I took a picture right quick. J.D. Thompson was running toward the pole. I went to my car and called an ambulance. I got back to the pole and J.D. was breathing into Champion. I backed off, way off until I hit a house and I couldn’t go any farther. I took another picture. Then I heard Thompson shouting down: He’s breathing!”. Morabito won the 1968 Pulitzer Prize for his photo, “The Kiss of Life”. #photography #photo #amazing #love #luck #history #beautiful #hero #thekissoflife #pulitzer #wow #thankyou #cpr #humanity #human #❤️ #hope
