Kevin Carter Pulitzer Prize Winner Sad Ending

This is the Pulitzer Prize winning photo taken by Kevin Carter in 1994 during the Sudan famine. The picture depicts a famine stricken child being stalked by a hungry vulture. The child is crawling toward a United Nations food camp, located a kilometer away.

No one one what happened to the child, including the photographer who left the scene as soon as the photo was taken. He later confined to a friend that he wished he had intervened. Journalists at the time were warned not to touched famine victims for fear of disease.

Three month later, and only a week after being bestowed of the Pulitzer Prize, the photographer; Kevin Carter committed suicide.
