Anderson Cooper Carries Bloody Child To Safety In Haiti (WARNING: GRAPHIC VIDEO)

On Monday on CNN, anchor Wolf Blitzer showed video footage of CNN's Anderson Cooper and his crew on the ground in Haiti caught up in the middle of a chaotic, bloody scene. The footage was shot during a store looting when things spiraled out of control and looters began hurling rocks and chunks of concrete. A boy was struck by a rock and had blood pouring down his forehead. In the video, Cooper supports and then carries the boy to safer grounds.

Cooper was the first major news anchor on the ground in Haiti. "On a story like this you need to see it with your own eyes," he wrote on his blog. Watch his first report from the earthquake shaken region here, and follow him on twitter, where he's been chronicling his journey, here.

WARNING: The video is very graphic and contains disturbing images.
