*A CNN camera crew was filming when anchor/reporter Anderson Cooper rushed to help a badly-injured boy escape a violent looting incident in Haiti.

The extremely graphic video shows people on the top of a store throwing slabs of concrete down at looters, one of which struck the young boy in the head.

His face bloodied from the injuries, he was scooped up by Cooper and carted off to a less chaotic area, where the newsman handed him to someone for treatment. Watch below.

WARNING – THE VIDEO IS GRAPHIC
