Also » In response to Hetherington’s death, filmmaker and writer Sebastain Junger launched a nonprofit called RISC — Reporters Instructed in Savings Colleagues — to provide free emergency medical training to freelance journalists. “Tim’s wounds were not necessarily fatal, but he could not get to help in time, and he bled out,” Junger said. “I realized if I had been with him, I could not have saved his life. Like most war reporters, I know almost nothing about battlefield medicine. Most of the war reporting done now is by freelancers, brave people who head into combat and hope for the best.”
