Foreign Correspondent - Coming Home: Combat Doctor
It was supposed to be a quick news assignment. The war correspondent calls into a busy combat hospital, meets the boss and aims her camera as he and his team go about their work. But what followed was an extremely harrowing and defining 24 hours for both reporter and doctor. Sally Sara found the scenes that unfolded in front of her at the ER in Afghanistan the most confronting of her career. For trauma surgeon Marc Dauphin it was a day among many that would leave a brave and seemingly unbreakable man shattered and suicidal. What went wrong?
Major Marc Dauphin led a crack multinational team of medics patching up soldiers and civilians in one of the busiest military hospitals in the world, Role 3 at Kandahar Airbase in Afghanistan. Unlike many of his patients, he survived the war without losing a drop of blood, but once back home in the peaceful Canadian countryside he began to fall apart. Sally Sara continues her powerful story on Dr Dauphin’s recovery, and looks at the impact of post traumatic stress disorder on people everywhere.
