Kiss of life

This 1967 Pulitzer award-winning photo entitled "Kiss of Life" shows a utility worker, J.D. Thompson, suspended on a utility pole and giving mouth to mouth resuscitation to a fellow lineman, Randall G. Champion, who was unconscious and hanging upside down after contacting a high voltage line. Champion survived and lived until 2002, when he died of heart failure at the age of 64. Thompson is still living. This shot was taken by photographer Rocco Morabito (November 2, 1920 – April 5, 2009).
