Resuscitation of baby / Basra, Iraq / August, 2003

 

Private Damien Kenny and Private Jonathan Hunt were searching a house in Basra in the south of the country after rounding up five terror suspects when they made their amazing discovery. 
There, in a dusty 3ft-long padlocked metal box and nestling among rocket-propelled grenade launchers, AK47s and ammunition, was little Rose. 

Tightly swaddled and barely two days old, she was no longer breathing. 
Putting down their own weapons, they began giving her mouth-to-mouth resuscitation. 
A few minutes later they were rewarded for their quick thinking when Rose - named by the soldiers after the red rose of their Lancashire regiment - squeezed Private Kenny's finger.
