Anderson Cooper Rescues Boy in Haiti Looting Incident

Anderson Cooper Rescues Boy in Haiti Looting Incident

Real-life superhero Anderson Cooper, who’s currently in Haiti covering the aftermath of the deadly earthquake, relayed his experience in the middle of a looting chaos on his CNN blog.

“I saw a looter on the roof of the store they’d broken into throw what I think was part of a concrete block into the crowd,” the 42-year-old journalist recounted. “It hit a small boy in the head.”

“I ran to where he was struggling, and picked him up off the ground. I brought him to a spot about a hundred feet away. I could feel his warm blood on my arms,” Anderson wrote.

Although the boy was carried to safety after he was picked up and brought to a safer area, Anderson‘s still not sure what happened to him.

“I hope he’s ok,” he wrote.

    Concrete blocks were being thrown off the roof, and after being struck, the boy couldn’t stand up and get to safety. Anderson brought him away from the immediate area, then behind a barricade that was set up against the looters. That’s when someone took the boy away from him, presumably to get him medical help.

    I don’t know if I’d call this man a hero. Isn’t this what any decent human being would have done?? There’s clearly a lot of chaos and people not thinking straight – Anderson Cooper being a decent fellow human being isn’t really being a hero!

    Looters have to be brought to justice at some point. Saying looting is okay because people are poor and hungry is wrong. Looting is just one step of lawlessness that descends to murder, pillage, armed robbery, you name it. Make it clear in your family that lawlessness is NEVER okay, even if you’re broke, starving and bleeding. Humans should never act like animals. Unfortunately, we’re seeing animals everywhere in Haiti.
