R.I.P. Rocco Morabito

My apologies, I'm a little late with my R.I.P.s this month (better late than never!). Rocco took one of the hottest moments in photo journalism on his way back to the newsroom in July of 1967 after covering a railroad strike. An unconscious, electrocuted utility worker was brought back to life by his co-worker - The Kiss of Life - earned him the first ever Pulitzer Prize for a news spot photo back in 1968.
