This photo before the Omagh bombing in Northern Ireland. Almost immediately after this photo was taken, a bomb was set off in the red car beside the boy on his dad's shoulders. The father and child survived miraculously, but the photographer and 28 others died, while around 220 were injured.

This picture was taken by the crew of a ship who saw this girl (11) floating on a disintegrating float. Her whole family was murdered on a sail boat by their hired captain who left her to drown with the sinking boat. She miraculously made it to the life float. She drifted for four days, no water, no food, being burned by the sun. Upon hearing that she had survived, the captain killed himself.
