The emotional toll endured by emergency room medics has been revealed by a moving photograph showing an ER doctor consumed by grief after losing a teenage patient.
The image was posted to a website by a friend and colleague of the doctor who explained that a 19-year-old he was trying to save passed away.
The doctor, wearing a white coat, is seen crouching down by the side of a road at night, with one hand holding a wall – the heart-ache of what he’d seen clearly too much to bear.
