ORLANDO DOCTOR | I still see their faces

A doctor who treated victims of the Orlando nightclub shooting says he is haunted by the thought he could have done more to save lives.

Orlando  Massacre

Dr Joseph Ibrahim told the BBC’s Panorama programme: “I still run through it in my mind. Did I do everything I could?”
Over two weeks have passed since the attack, in which 49 people were killed.
Dr Ibrahim, who, like the attacker, Omar Mateen, is the son of Muslim immigrants, said he could still picture the faces of those who died in the trauma unit he runs.
He said he expects to carry the tragedy with him “for the rest of my life, I have no doubt.”
