Pictures of the Year: A Picture and its Story
Men carry nine-year-old Ademola Ayanbola, who was rescued at the site of a collapsed building containing a school in Nigeria's commercial capital of Lagos, Nigeria, March 13, 2019. Reuters Photographer Temilade Adelaja: "The boy lay wide-eyed on a bed of outstretched arms. The men who carried him, and others looking on, cheered at the sight of the youngster who seconds earlier had been pulled from the rubble of a four-storey building that collapsed in Lagos. Nine-year-old Ademola Ayanbola had been in a classroom on the top floor. He emerged with his face caked in white dust from the rubble and a bloody graze on the side of his head. His eyes were open, so we knew he was alive. He wasn't shouting or crying. He was so calm. People were shouting 'there's a child.' The men who surrounded him were rescue workers, residents and "area boys" Ð youths who roam parts of Lagos in gangs. The boy's father, Francis Ayanbola, had feared he would never see his son alive again. 'When I got there everything was flat,' he said. 'I was just crying. I was expecting the death of my son.' A friend eventually called Ayanbola to tell him his child was being treated at a hospital. 'When I finally held my son, I was so excited, I was so happy. It wasn't my son's dead body that I would have to carry,' he said." REUTERS/Temilade Adelaja/ File Photo SEARCH "POY STORIES 2019" FOR THIS STORY. SEARCH "WIDER IMAGE" FOR ALL STORIES.

A Picture and its Story: Nigerian boy pulled from rubble remains calm amid chaos
The boy lay wide-eyed on a bed of outstretched arms. The men who carried him, and others looking on, cheered at the sight of the youngster who seconds earlier had been pulled from the rubble of a four-storey building that collapsed in Lagos, Nigeria. Nine-year-old Ademola Ayanbola had been in a classroom on the top floor of the building when it collapsed on Wednesday. One of around 100 pupils who attended the primary school in the Lagos Island district of Nigeria's commercial capital, he emerged with his face caked in white dust from the rubble and a bloody graze on the side of his head. "His eyes were open, so we knew he was alive. He wasn't shouting or crying. He was so calm," said Temilade Adelaja, the Reuters photographer who captured the moment. "People were shouting 'there's a child'. There were people everywhere, and lots of shouting. Then they brought him out," she said, describing the moments before his rescue. The men who surrounded him were a mix of rescue workers, residents and what locals refer to as "area boys" - youths who roam parts of Lagos in gangs. They were outside the collapsed building for hours under the tropical sun: searching, talking and sometimes arguing. The boy's father, Francis Ayanbola, had feared he would never see his son alive again when he heard the building had collapsed. First, he went to the site, he said. "When I got there everything was flat. I was just crying. I was expecting the death of my son," he said. Next, he said he visited two hospitals and saw six dead children. "I couldn't even look at their faces because I was feeling so bad," he said of the four boys and two girls he saw, none of whom he recognised. A friend eventually called Ayanbola to tell him his child was being treated at a hospital. REUTERS/Temilade Adelaja SEARCH "NIGERIA BOY" FOR THIS STORY. SEARCH "WIDER IMAGE" FOR ALL STORIES.
