Default Did this photojournalist capture footage of his own death?

Crazy stuff. In retrospect it's probably not a good idea to film snipers. Don't see a lot of longevity in that career.

A photojournalist covering unrest in Cairo, Egypt, may have documented the moment of his own death on video, CNN reports.

Ahmed Assem El-Senousy was taking photos of bloody clashes in Cairo streets last Monday, CNN reports, when he began capturing video footage of a military sniper shooting from a nearby rooftop:



Suddenly the sniper’s rifle turns to the left…



…then seems to point directly at El-Senousy:



A split second later the video image collapses in what looks like a live camera fumbling and dropping.

An autopsy confirmed that a bullet went through El-Senousy’s face, CNN reported.

His tearful mother said, “I tell him it’s very dangerous…and every time he said, ‘If I die about the truth I welcome death.’”

Here’s the shocking video from CNN:

Newsmen seem to have a hard time understanding that in situations where a country's military is firing on its civilians, the guy with the camera is a prime target.
