The Wider Image: Stranded and injured, Lebanese family reels from blast
Adel Faraj Oghlo, 38, who was injured in an explosion on the Beirut port, speaks to Dr. Joseph Salloum during a hospital appointment in Beirut, Lebanon, August 15, 2020. When the blast sent a mushroom cloud over Beirut, Adel lay on a road pleading for help in the chaos. One person used a belt as tourniquet. Another, a waiter, wrapped an apron around his crushed leg. Oghlo worries that doctors may have to amputate his leg, held together by metal screws. "Medication doesn't have an effect anymore, so now I am trying to get used to the pain, get to know it, and for it to know me," he said. "Sometimes I just sit and stroke it... and cry, cry from pain. Sometimes I ask it for a five minute break." REUTERS/Hannah McKay SEARCH "FAMILY HOME LEBANON" FOR THIS STORY. SEARCH "WIDER IMAGE" FOR ALL STORIES
