‘Fearless: the Margaret Moth Story’

This article is more than 9 years old.

Margaret Moth was in her early 40’s and a camerawoman for CNN when she was hit by sniper fire in Sarajevo. The shooting severely damaged her face and throat, including her ability to speak. But within two years she was back in Bosnia, and continued on to other war zones around the world. Moth is now fighting terminal cancer at a hospice in Minnesota. She’s also the subject of a new CNN mini-documentary. We talk to Moth, as well as her former colleague Stefano Kotsonis, who was in the car with her during the shooting. Kotsonis now works for WBUR.
