Chilled and exhausted – no food, drink or strength to go on. This was the condition of the Syrians, who were found by volunteers in the forest on Sunday morning, a few hundred meters from the state of emergency.
“People die in these forests,” said Lazzeri. She added that we hear about it in the media, but “seeing it with our own eyes and facing such a professional situation in which the photos we are in for the first time actually balance on the verge of life and death are definitely something in a human being. change”.
– From there you definitely come back as a different journalist. There is this huge change in humanity – she said.
Talking about an interview with a doctor who spoke in the report, she noted that she was not the only healthcare professional who “talked about it so emotionally”. – People mentally, emotionally cannot cope with it. Probably because none of us is ready to see children brought from the forest without shoes, in wet socks, chilled two-year-olds, three-year-olds, four-year-olds. These are certainly not places where these children should be – said Lazzeri.
– I think that really anyone who would collide with this personally at least once, with a man who simply requires help, with a man who is shivering with cold, who is semiconscious and in his half-consciousness asks all the time about the child lying next to him. heated by the body of a woman and a man, thanks to which the child was in the best condition, I think these are the moments when, above all, humanity is awakened – said the journalist. She added that “we journalists sometimes describe this reality with tears in our eyes”.
