Pic of doctor crying, goes viral
Headlines erupted worldwide last week, when an emergency room doctor was photographed crying. The story behind the picture is that a paramedic brought in a 19-year-old patient. The doctor tried to save the teen's life, but it was too late.
As the ambulance was pulling away from the hospital's emergency wing, a quick acting paramedic -- now identified as Nick Moore -- snapped a picture of the attending doctor on his haunches, gripping a wall and crying.
Mr. Moore uploaded the picture to social site Reddit and wrote: "I think people should know that the care providers are just as human as the patients and this [photo] shows it stronger than anything I have seen in long while."
The picture was shared almost immediately and is still doing the rounds.
Mr. Moore said that after grieving the loss of the young patient, the doctor gathered himself and returned to the emergency room to continue treating others.
