News of events and people in Arlington County, VA
Breathing the fire is the title of CBS News correspondent, Kimberly Dozier memoir. She is fought her way back from critical injuries sustained in a Baghdad bombing last year, Memorial Day, Dozier. Recalls that event as a pivotal moment from which to assess her world, her rise to network broadcasting, the demands and perils of women covering dangerous events and the politics around her.
It was at that instant that the bombers detonated a approximately 500 pound car bomb. It was maybe 10 or 12 feet from the captain and his translator and from Paul and James my camera team, the captain and his translator were killed. Instantly Paul was left fighting for his life. James was killed instantly and I a little further back. Remember getting slammed into space, smelling sulfur like a thousand matches and coming to if I ever lost consciousness, I'm not sure but trying to figure out where I was where they were.
