      Sebastian Junger Launches Medical Training Program For Freelance

      NEW YORK -- Tim Hetherington didn't have to die in Libya.
      It's that belief that has led Sebastian Junger, a close friend and
      colleague of the award-winning photojournalist, to launch Reporters
      Instructed In Saving Colleagues (RISC), an organization providing freelance
      journalists with emergency medical training.
      Junger began thinking about RISC following Hetherington's funeral in
      London, where a combat medic told him that Hetherington -- who'd sustained
      a serious shrapnel wound -- may have reached a nearby Misrata hospital
      alive if someone, perhaps another journalist on the scene, had stopped the
      bleeding for 10 more minutes. But Hetherington, along with photographer
      Chris Hondros, died in Libya that day.
