World's Famous Picture in 1994.

Stricken child crawling towards a food camp in 1994.

The photo is the "Pulitzer Prize" winning photo taken in 1994 during the Sudan Famine. The picture depicts a stricken child crawling towards the United Nations food camp, located about a kilometer away.

The vulture is waiting for the child to die so that it can eat him. This picture shocked the whole world. No one knows what happened to the child, including the photographer Kevin Carter who left the place as soon as the photograph was taken.

Three months later he committed suicide due to depression.
