VIDEO: Anderson Cooper Saves Haitian, Looks Fierce While Doing It
The late night scape may be filled with hosts ready to declare themselves heroes but in Haiti there are a few CNN anchors actually saving lives. Among them, Dr. Sanjay Gupta, who just last week was left to manage an entire hospital when United Nations ordered all of its doctors and nurses to evacuate (somehow, he frantically tweeted the whole experience here) and just yesterday, Anderson Cooper, who pulled an injured Haitian boy out from looting chaos. Click through for the graphic video.
The 360 host had been covering the aftermath of the devastating earthquake when he heard shots being fired. He, his cameraman, his translator and a Getty photographer followed the sound and discovered a store being looted. As police offers and the store's American owner tried to fend off the culprits, a fight broke out with "wood, screwdrivers and rocks" being used as weapons. One boy fell to the ground, unable to get up. Cooper dropped his camera, picked up the boy and carried him to away from the looting war zone.
