I commented in another thread last night about a photo I saw of a woman at the scene who was clearly dead. Well, guess what? She was just identified as the second victim. That photo is still up on numerous news websites. For the sake of her family, I wish they would all do the right thing and take that photo down. Hell, take them ALL down. We don't need to see the victims in such detail.

 One of the most moving and heart wrenching pics after 911 was the dead priest being carried by firemen.

 I would not want the last moment of my loved ones life to be plastered all over the Internet for everyone to see.

From the Murrah Building bombing, the firefighter carrying the dead body of the little girl from the daycare - rips my heart out every time I see it.

No. There was a pic of a nurse checking the pulse of two women who were laying near one another. The one woman was reaching for the other, so I assume they knew each other. The one woman is the second person they confirmed dead. 

I really don't want to go find it, because I don't want to look at it again. And trust me, you don't want to see it, either. In the link I posted above, if you look in the comments section, some other people were discussing it as well, so apparently I'm not the only one who made the connection.

I saw that poor woman's lifeless eyes staring up every time I closed my eyes last night. I really, really wish I hadn't seen that photo, because I'll never get it out of my head. And as disturbing as I found it, I can imagine what her friends or family must think. Hopefully none of them have seen it.

 was the image on NBC?  If yes, was it one of the ones that had a content warning?

No, it wasn't on NBC. And there was no content warning. It was just at the bottom of the story I was reading. Took me by surprise.
