An amateur tourniquet draped around her neck, she can be seen sitting slumped in the dust beside a wall, blood dripping from her hand and mouth as she gasps for breath. Glancing up at the officer approaching her, she seems resigned to her fate. “Calm down, kid,” the officer says. “The helicopter is coming for you. It is coming now, easy, easy, you are going to be OK. Try to hang on.” The woman, though, would later die in hospital.
