goodnight-i-love-you: i-shouldletyougo: dressedtilnine: I love when moments like this get captured on film. I always wonder what became of the people in them.. I bet they wouldn’t have guessed that half a century later people would still be admiring them. And think how important that kiss must have been to the both of them, to go to all the trouble. I hope to be kissed with such fervor someday. And I hope they made it. Yep, crying. love love love omg
This 1967 award-winning photo entitled "Kiss of Life" shows two power linemen, Randall Champion & J. D. Thompson, at the top of a utility pole. They had been performing routine maintenance when Champion brushed one of the high voltage lines at the very top. Over 4000 volts entered Champion’s body & instantly stopped his heart. His safety harness prevented a fall & Thompson, who had been ascending below him, quickly reached him & performed mouth-to-mouth resuscitation.
