There is an element of sick voyeurism in posting video footage of a dying child on social media! There are ethical issues raised by posting footage of a delirious child struggling for her life for 60 hours. You could never get away with posting live footage of an American child struggling for her life on social media. I was not able to view this footage but the story alone triggered post traumatic stress symptoms. Are you aware people can develop PTSD from vicarious experiencing of traumatic death? The people of Columbia would have offered this child a greater service through euthenasia.
