Sudanese child being stalked by a vulture nearby. It is quite obvious that the child was starving to death, while the vulture was patiently waiting for the toddler to die so he can have a good meal. Nobody knows what happened to the child, who crawled his way to a United Nations food camp. Photographer Kevin Carter won a Pulitzer Prize for this shocking picture, but he eventually committed suicide three months after he took the shot.

  15. Palemalesa says:

    The photo of the dying child was taken in Ethiopia by Kevin Carter in the 1990's. He did not commit suicide. He was part of a group of five South African photographers called the “Bang Bang club who dominated the Pulitzer prize photography sections of the late 1980's to mid 1990's. He won a Pulitzer for this photograph but refused to accept it. He and the other photographers carried the child to the UN aid station. Kevin committed suicide only about five years ago.

    Hi, just thought I would let you know (because I thought the same as you when I first saw the picture) that he actually did try to help, how ever because of all the dieases, it was the duty of his guides to forcefully restrained him to protect him. He couldnt deal with what he saw, so he killed himself.
