A VBIED (Vehicle Borne Improvised Explosive Devise) explodes against a B-Troop 1/11 ACR HUMMWV near Baghdad damaging nearby vehicles and injuring civilians. 11th ACR troops franticly work to save an Iraqi civilian in the background who died later. Although the HUMMWV gunner was burned on the face and wrist, he gave aid to the wounded before being treated himself. A schoolboy was rushed to the Hospital at Abu Ghraib Prison
where he was treated for a schrapnel wound to the head and released the following day.
