Do you remember the tragic scene of Vietnamese villagers running from a burning village after a napalm attack? The little girl in the scene broke my heart. I prayed for her many times through the years when I would see this awful photo. In this CBN story we find that the little girl, Kim Phuc, miraculously survived, and later became a believer in Jesus Christ. We also find out that there is a new treatment for burn scars that promises to do wonderful things for Kim and many other victims of war. ~ TD

The Amazing Testimony of Vietnam War’s Iconic ‘Napalm Girl’

by Wendy Griffith

WASHINGTON — It’s one of the most iconic photos of all time and one of the most haunting. The image of a Vietnamese girl running naked in the street after a napalm bomb exploded on her neighborhood.

In this Sept. 25, 2015 photo, Kim Phuc poses for a photo at a hotel in Miami. Phuc arrived from her home in Canada to undergo a series of laser treatments to reduce the scars and pain she has endured for 40 years following an attack on her village during the Vietnam war. (AP Photo/Nick Ut)

That was 1972. Today, Kim Phuc still lives with the scars but a new treatment is changing the way she and other burn victims live their lives.

The famous photo shows then 9-year-old Kim Phuc trying to outrun her burning flesh after the South Vietnamese dropped a napalm bomb on her village of Trang Bang. Her burns were so bad, the doctors gave her zero chance of survival and took her body to the morgue where it remained for three days!
