16 سنة من التصوير الصحفي والكثير من الحروب. استطيع ان اقول لم أرى كالذي رأيته اليوم في منطقة الاشرفية, وخصوصا امام…
In a picture that was shared on social media, the nurse could be seen holding 3 newborn babies and keeping them safe from the devastation that was brought by the massive explosion.
On August 4, 2020, Beirut, the capital of Lebanon saw devastating damage.
It is said that the massive explosion was felt as far as 10 kilometers away from the epicenter of the explosion, not only that, but a 4.5 magnitude earthquake was triggered by the explosion.
The nurse, whose identity was not shared with the public, reportedly kept the 3 babies safe in a local hospital.
The photographer that took the picture said the woman was a “heroine”.
Bilal Marie Jawich, a 16 year veteran in press photography and wars, he said he saw something that he had never seen before.
Especially in front of the rum hospital and this ‘heroine’ caught me inside the hospital and was accelerating to call despite the suspension of communication holding three newborn babies and surrounded by dozens of bodies and wounded. I was amazed when I saw the nurse holding three newborns. I noticed the nurse’s calm, which contrasted with the surrounding atmosphere just one meter away. Several dead and injured people lay nearby. However, the nurse looked like she possessed a hidden force that gave her self-control and the ability to save those children. People stand out amidst these violent and dark and evil circumstances and this nurse was up to the task.
The explosion that happened in Beirut was reportedly caused by more than 2,750 tons of abandoned ammonium nitrate, which was left at a firecracker warehouse in the city’s port.
General Security chief Abbas Ibrahim said the ammonium nitrate is likely confiscated by authorities ‘a while back’.
Not all heroes wear capes, some wear scrubs.
Thank you, unknown nurse, you are a hero.
