The kiss of life

Apparently, these men worked for the Jacksonville (Florida) Electric Authority.

The Kiss of Life Photograph is Incredible

Taken in 1967 by Rocco Morabito, this is one of the most powerful photographs we've seen. Called the Kiss of Life photo, it shows a utility worker named J.D. Thompson giving mouth-to-mouth to co-worker Randall G. Champion after he went unconscious following contact with a high voltage line.


What's even more incredible is Champion not only survived this thanks to Thompson, but he lived an extra 35 years. He died in 2002. Thompson is still alive today.
