The Pulitzer Prize winning photo (“Napalm Girl”) was taken by Associated Press photographer Nick Ut on June 8, 1972. It shows 9-year-old Kim Phuc, center,
running down Route 1 near Trang Bang, Vietnam after an aerial napalm
attack. After snapping the photograph, Ut took Kim Phuc and the other
injured children to Barsky Hospital in Saigon. Following a 14-month
hospital stay and 17 surgical procedures, she was able to return
home. Ut continued to visit her until he was evacuated during the
fall of Saigon.
