20 Historical Photos That Will Leave You Speechless

2. The Kiss of Life, 1967

Although it may seem hard to believe, the kiss shown in the photo above took place during a life or death scenario. Randall G. Champion is shown receiving mouth-to-mouth from fellow co-worker J.D. Thompson after contact with a low voltage line left Champion unconscious.

Champion would survive the incident and the photographer who caught this incredible scene would go on to win a Pulitzer price. Isn’t it funny, that this photo was given an award when the photographer should’ve called 911 instead of photographing the scene. The next photograph will glimpse back to old times.
