An Iraqi reporter has a close call with death in western Mosul. While a group of journalists stand around and talk, thinking they are relatively safe, an ISIS sniper takes aim and fires a round. The bullet strikes an action camera mounted on the journalist’s chest, sending bits of debris into his face. The wounds are only superficial and he is extremely lucky to escape with his life.
