no that is the colour fresh blood is. it is actually a much brighter red that the fake stuff they use in films and TV.
and males have brighter red blood than females because they have a higher number of red blood cells.

Bright red blood does look fake on a BLACK guy jesus. On top of that their blood is probably redder in Haiti due to the living conditions and such.

i kinda see Corpsecrank`s point of view. the blood does look so fake, and i hope that kid gets better if he was actually bleeding that bad
im not trying to take anyone`s side here, i dont even know who anderson cooper is and i dont care either. its just that the colour of blood in these pics and the videos on bbc look way too red, so i wouldnt blame anyone for thinking the whole thing was faked

Corpsecrank---you`re an idiot.

This kid was hit in the head with a chunk of concrete, as the videos show, during a looting scuffle. Scalp wounds, even small ones, bleed like crazy. And despite what you think, people of darker colored skin have the same color blood as those with lighter colored skin.

Know what you`re talking about before you start typing, otherwise you make yourself look like a jackhole.

I don`t see him "saving" this kid from anything. I also do not see anything wrong with this kids head that it would be losing the kind of blood in these pictures. And finally I have bleed enough times in my life to know what it looks like and this is not blood. Looks more like red paint than blood.

Not trying to be racist but that kid is pretty dark and if he were actually bleeding you would barely be able to see the blood compared to what is shown here.

Just doesn`t add up. I think someone really wanted to make a name for themselves by taking advantage of a disaster pretty low...

i dont think it was photoshopped, and maybe a little dramatic of action, but at least he helped the kid unlike some reporters that are like "I am here live with this bleeding kid getting the poo kicked out him, just look at him, LOOK AT HIM BLEED, back to you reporter in america" BTW #3 is like WTF.

The volunteer director usually just does an interview consisting of "why do you want to volunteer here" and then tries to find them a department.

I had asked to be put into emergency room and she said because I was younger than they usually allow in, she gave me the job interview that she gives nurses who want to work as an employee in the ER to be sure that I would be able to handle the environment, and then I had to take about three different tests on contact/air/bodily fluids diseases and infections that I could potentially be exposed to, and how I am to handle these situations and how to avoid getting infected by them,and then of course, the health exams to ensure that I was healthy enough to work in ER, along with drug testing, Hepatitis B shots(or proof of them), Tb testing, and chicken pox shots(or proof of them), and a "Volunteers Bare Facts" which is basically fire safety, infection control, risk management, codes, etc.

It was a couple week process to g

I accept your apology, but I would like to point out that I don`t feel that I was oversensitive in anything I said.

I`m sure that your concerns make sense to you, but realize that the hospital didn`t just let me walk in the doors. I had to get shots and tests and take exams in order to be able to be in the environment. And then there is the other fact that I am not even allowed to go into the rooms of patients that pose a risk to my health. Sure, there are other risks, but the hospital takes care to insure that there are as few as they are able to control.

And I think you`ll find if you go back and read over my comments, I was not "oversensitive" on anything I said. You are just imagining someone getting all worked up and upset over talking to you. I assure you, I`m not.

By all means, don`t tip toe. I PROMISE you, nothing that you say is going to get me worked up and upset.

Don`t be overly sensitive here. I haven`t said anything offensive and nothing directly to you. If you volunteer that`s great. I just happen to think an emergency room is not an appropriate place to have minors volunteering because there are hazards. If you were exposed to a BBP someone would have to answer for that. It`s got nothing to do (like I said before) with the tasks involved.

Oh, and I will comment on anything I please. The topic came to you when I was surprised by the revelation that a minor in the states was volunteering in an emergency room. I`m certainly not going to tip toe around you because you can`t seperate your emotions from the issue. I didn`t target you. I`m sorry you felt that way. Relax.

"It`s not the degree of difficulty involved in the tasks that has me concerned, it`s the liabilty."

I`m sorry, but what are you getting at? That I`m incapable of getting pillows and blankets? How and when did this turn into whether or not I should be allowed to volunteer in an emergency room? I will say again- I do not perform surgery on any patients. I just try to make sure everyone is comfortable.

I would appreciate it if you stopped commenting on what I should and should be doing. I did nothing to you, and I really didn`t ask for your guidance. So it was great chatting with you, but I really wish you would stop now.

Didn`t we go through the stupid American vs Non-American argument already?

Neosophist: So does that imply you don`t consider him a hero? You`re in the US, so I`m under the impression you`re American. Does it -really- matter whether or not he`s American?

Let me answer that for you: No.. either way it`d be a stereotype. Either way he stepped up and did what he didn`t have to do.

Losing people he cared about is the main drive behind becoming a journalist, he is an active voice against violence. He didn`t have to help that kid, as a reporter it`s not his job, but he did because he cares.
Yes, you shouldn`t normally move someone with a head wound like that, but considering the situation, it was important that that kid get away from there as soon as possble.

FYI the blood is that red because arterial blood- which means it is highly oxygenated which is what gives it the bright colour. most of the time when we see blood its from a vien meaning its already gone round the body "delivering" oxygen to vital organs etc so with the lower oxygen content the blood is darker

I volunteer in an emergency room, and just last Monday I had done rounds and saw a person who had slipped and fell, and his head went into a glass table, and I remember that his blood was bright red, practically scarlet.

I don`t really know the reason why, but I`m just adding that I`ve seen blood this bright in real life so it is possible

This is real. I`ve seen way too many head injuires and that`s what they look like. The bleeding is arterial in nautre and it`s actively bleeding. I bet his heart rate was over 150 bpm. BP thru the roof. Fight or Flight doing it`s magic.

Contrary to what you all want to think, O`Reilly probably would have done much the same. Whether or not you agree with his beliefs or think he`s a "good person," he has a heart. I think Obama, Bush I and II, Clinton, Gore, Pelosi, Rice, even Cheney would all have done this.

You can`t reduce everything to politics. We are, above all, humans.

I still think it`s only because he`s famous that this has become newsworthy. This story sells because it`s Anderson Cooper. Not because of what he has done.

I think this is real. The thing that makes this "newsworthy" and "popular" is that it`s Anderson Cooper to the rescue.

I`m certain if this were some average person/aid worker/average Hatian...then the media would not be all over it. Nor would we as a general western population.

It`s great what Anderson Cooper did, but if it were not him would it have ended up on IAB?

@Gn0m3: I don`t know where you learned your biology, or if you`ve learned any biology at all, but oxygen does not keep cells "warm." Oxygen is used to produce energy in aerobic cellular respiration. It`s true that in colder climates more of that energy is needed to maintain body temperature, but that doesn`t correspond to a significant difference in oxygen intake. The brightness of this kid`s blood is probably due to the fact that it`s diluted with sweat and/or water and probably was arterial blood to begin with, which as you mention, is more heavily oxygenated. Nothing to do with climate.

"let`s all go to wikipedia to look up facts to support out arguments. Yayyyyyy"

13-17 eh? Well, not everybody is as dumb as you. Some people know lots of things and don`t need an online encyclopedia to understand the difference between oxygenated blood and non-oxygenated blood.

Although, I was under the impression that the darker blood was simply thicker blood since it is carrying less oxygen, has less plasma, therefore making it dark. Whereas bright red blood had more oxygen and plasma, which is why it seemed darker and more fluid...

I was apparently a bit wrong...

if you know biology, you would know that blood would be that bright in a place like Haiti.

Oxygen is carried throughout the blood to make the body warmer. In a cold environment, more of the oxygen is absorbed by cells, which in turn makes the blood darker. In a hot environment, the cells do not need as much oxygen to keep them warm, which keeps the blood brighter.

That also explains why arterial blood is brighter than venous blood, because lots of oxygen has been absorbed by the body as it returns back to the heart. While arterial blood is fresh from the heart and heavily oxygenated.

Head wounds also bleed a lot because a human head contains many capillaries, which makes head wounds look deceivingly bad, when really most are fairly minor.

As a nurse I believe that it is very possible for there to be that much blood. Your scalp is rich with blood vessels even small cuts will bleed profusely Fresh blood is very bright red and darkens over exposure to O2.

I`ve also read people saying that the cut is either really small or even not there for that much blood. Have you ever had your face cut? Or your head? It bleeds. A LOT. Way more than your leg or arm would. I got a small one inch gash on my eyebrow once that bled for a good five minutes, before it even showed signs of slowing down. That doesn`t seem like a lot, but then you have to stop and thing, you usually stop bleeding within the first thirty-ninety seconds after you get a cut that big on most other places on your body.

I`m not too sure what exactly this kid is being saved from.

"Oh crap..watch as I run around holding a kid while everyone else just mills about. Yeah I`m a fskin HERO. Woo..take THAT. Yeah, now I am better than that other guy. Yeah..watch I`m gonna run with him again..wooo..."

This is going to come off as harsh but... blood isn`t that bright. Unless it`s different for black people?
If it is real, props to him and shame on the person taking the photos instead of saving the others. If it is fake, I`m not surprised since he`s from the Media.

The whole looting thing in the title threw me off, so my first thought about the third picture was "Haha, he was caught RED HANDED."

Bad joke is bad, I know.

Whatever just trying to out do the other guy and this time they actually have footage how coincidental. This is complete bullpoo. And yea a lot of people would fake something like to get ahead in the eye of the public. Now he is a hero so he will gain many more viewers.

I seen the video report on this. The kid was hit in the head with a chunk of concrete by looters. Anderson, To his credit, set down his camera, pick up this kid and handed him over a barricade to safety. Kudos to him.

The blood looks the same color as the guy that was stoned to death in the "Year of photos 2009 (part 3 of 3)" link that was posted on here Dec 17, 2009. I doubt that picture was staged.

I think the blood is real. bright blood just means that it`s fresh. I just wonder whether the success of other journalists becoming part of the action prompted the event?

@MandyLea: What made you think he was a douchebag? Just curious. Met the guy once on campus and he seemed like a great guy.

mmm yea it looks very red, and also there dont seem to be any open wounds on his head or face as the blood would suggest, this could be another camera crew trying to get in on the real channel 7 story

This sort of makes me think that he`s a little less of a douchbag.
P.s. blood will often look that bright red when it`s highly oxygenated and if there`s a lot of adrenalin. I would imagine there would be a lot of both.

You know, I have seen a lot of blood in my days. Gunshots, stabbings, accidents and the like...but I have to say that kids blood has to be the reddest. Even for highly oxygenated blood it looks.....too red.
