“This is Omran. He’s alive. We wanted you to know”: CNN anchor Kate Bolduan gets emotional while reporting on this heartbreaking photo from Aleppo, Syria.
In a brief editorial interrupted by tears, she says:
“What strikes me is we shed tears, but there are no tears here. He doesn’t cry once. That little boy is in total shock. He’s stunned, inside his home one moment and the next, lost in the flurry and fury of war and chaos.”
CNN’s Kate Bolduan is a reporter who asks tough questions and is often expressive and emphatic when she does it. Today, however, she was expressive in a very different way while sharing a video of a five-year-old Syrian named Omran Daqneesh sitting in the back of an ambulance with blood and soot all over him.
The heartbreaking image of a five-year-old Syrian boy sitting bloodied and alone in the back of an ambulance has shocked the world. Omran Daqneesh was pictured by rebels in the besieged city of Aleppo on Wednesday. The city is targeted daily by Russian and Syrian airstrikes.
