Fire Escape Collapse, Stanley Forman, 1975 stelios

Fire Escape Collapse
Stanley Forman

This photo was shocking to me, it was a tragedy captured at the perfect moment. The photographer was able to capture the facial expression of two children as they fell five floors down from a fire escape. The fire escape was suppose to save the children from fire happening inside there home  but instead the fire escape collapsed and ended one of the Childs lifes. After this photo was taken, it spread like wildfire and make fire escape safety codes get much tougher so nothing like this could ever happen again.
