Call the midwife: Syrian teenage "doctor" delivers
If you’re a desperate woman in labor in Syria’s besieged city of Aleppo, that would be a 14-year-old boy.
This wrenching video from videographer Robert King shows that today’s war heroes don’t have to carry guns. It features a teenager who is a child soldier in the war against senseless death.
Here's the description from New York-based multi-media company VICE:
VICE today presents the latest from its Ground Zero: Syria series,
featuring the life and work of a 14-year old child nurse who delivers babies,
stitches and cleans wounds, changes bandages, and mops floors, while the
country's actual doctors are fleeing amidst the brutal war in Aleppo.
