-> ''"Your shirt..."''
-->-- '''Tara''', ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer''

Want a surefire way to BreakTheCutie? Well, nothing causes mental trauma quite like being covered in the blood of another person. Not only that, but the image this creates is so [[TrueArtIsAngsty arty]] that it can let you get away with putting lots of violence in your film and still have it called TrueArt.

Can be a GoryDiscretionShot, although not always - the most common way it will play out is that someone will have a gun to their head, ready to commit suicide. The innocent one begs them to stop, we hear a gunshot, and then see the blood hit the face.

!Examples:

[[foldercontrol]]

[[folder:Anime & Manga]]
* Often happens to poor Tetsunosuke in ''PeacemakerKurogane''.
* In ''Anime/SerialExperimentsLain'', when Lain confronts a suicidal drug-user in a club. [[spoiler:Even worse it's Lain's doppleganger talking, but she reverts to being normal Lain while still covered in blood]]. That was her first CrowningMomentOfAwesome, and it sets the grim, disturbing mood of the rest of the series.
* Happens so often in ''VisualNovel/HigurashiWhenTheyCry'' (most notably during the BigBad's StartOfDarkness) that you start to wonder how they can afford to clean up the mess so often.
** Subverted in the manga-only arc ''Onisarashi-hen''. After appearing to play this trope straight three times in a row, [[spoiler:Detective Oishi realizes that the Blood Splattered Innocent in question is a bit ''too'' blood splattered to really be innocent...]]
* When "the children" are discovered by Eureka in ''EurekaSeven'' they're covered in the blood of their family that Eureka just killed.
** In episode 37, blood was splattered all over the mother and child when Anemone slaughtered the anti-body Coralian.
* Tomoe in the ''RurouniKenshin'' backstory : "You make the bloody rain fall."
* Given that many of the characters are [[PsychopathicManchild homicidal]] {{Tyke Bomb}}s with the power to tear humans apart in various graphic ways, there are many examples of this trope in ''Manga/ElfenLied''.
** Kouta was splattered with blood when [[spoiler:Lucy (Kaede) rips his sister into half]].
* Possibly subverted in ''Anime/CodeGeass'' [[WhamEpisode episode 22]]: [[spoiler:the sweet, innocent Euphemia, splattered with the blood of people she was forced to kill by Lelouch's malfunctioning Geass]].
** A more conventional example occurs in the flashbacks to Marianne's death, with Nunnaly as the blood-splattered innocent while Lelouch looks on in horror from atop the stairs.
** And the first time Lelouch uses his Geass [[PsychicAssistedSuicide to order a bunch of soldier to kill themselves]], he ends up with some blood on his face, as he looks in horror the people he killed, and realizes his life would change after that. Then he [[PsychoticSmirk grins the most evil grin in the world]], revealing the ''[[MagnificentBastard other]]'' [[MagnificentBastard side of his personality]].
* ''LightNovel/HaruhiSuzumiya'' subverts this. Yuki is busy protecting Kyon from Ryoko, and she gets hit with half a dozen steel spikes. Ryoko then impales her with 2 tentacles, ripping through her chest cavity. We see Kyon's face splattered with Yuki's blood. She gets better though.
** In the movie, though, this happens perfectly. [[spoiler: After Yuki turns herself and the world around her into normals, Kyon is sent back to fix everything. Just as he is about to, Ryoko stabs him in the back out of nowhere and pulls the knife out, splattering the now-normal+innocent Yuki with blood.]] Her expression is [[TearJerker Tear Jerkish]] for the audience, but the whole situation would be a severe case of horror for the [[spoiler: now-normal Yuki.]]
* In ''RedGarden'', [[spoiler:one of the cops investigating Lise's death]] gets killed just as [[spoiler:he ''finds'' Lise, who's BackFromTheDead]], splattering her with blood in the process. Then it just keeps happening... [[BreakTheCutie Poor]] [[TheWoobie girl]].
* In ''Manga/BlackButler'' during the end of JackTheRipper arc Ciel and Sebastian are standing outside of Mary Kelly's building so they can catch The Ripper. Following a scream Ciel flings the door open only to be hit with a splatter of blood on his face. Ciel's not necessarily innocent, per se (he has no qualms with killing 'bad guys'), but he was only 12 years old at the time, and it obviously affected him to the point of freezing up in terror for the whole next scene.
* In {{Pandora Hearts}} [[spoiler: Vincent and the tragedy of Sabrie]], though this was possibly not so innocent.
** A straighter example is Oz in chapter 70.
* ''LightNovel/KyoKaraMaoh'': Yuuri when [[spoiler: Saralegui gets shot with an arrow.]]
* ''{{Uragiri wa Boku no Namae wo Shitteiru}}'': In episode 4 Yuki gets some of Zess's blood on his face after Zess is stabbed by Uzuki. (A demon is controlling Uzuki).
* ''Manga/{{xxxHolic}}'': A slight variant occurs when a woman's wish on a monkey's paw inadvertently causes a man to fall in front of a train. The ensuing spray of blood splashes over the platform and onto her shoes.
* This seems to happen to Anri an awful lot in ''{{Durarara}}!!''
* A variation occurs in ''Manga/{{Hellsing}}''; during a flashback, we see how Seras ''avoided'' being drenched in blood, because she was hidden in a closet, but winds up in a puddle of her ''own'' blood after being shot while [[EyeScream stabbing a man in the eye]].
** In a flashback to how her uncle turned on her practically the moment her father died, we got an {{inverted}} case. Integra is shot, leading to an otherwise inactive Alucard being splashed with her blood.
* In ''Manga/BlackLagoon'', the "[[CreepyTwins vampire twins]]" get blood all over themselves. [[spoiler: Of course, ''they'' enjoy it hugely...as long as it's not their own.]]
* Lily in ''[[Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha Magical Record Lyrical Nanoha Force]]'' during her time as a lab experiment. Having test subjects undergo BodyHorror and burst right in front of her, splattering her with their blood, really didn't help [[TraumaInducedAmnesia her mental state]].
* ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'': If you think on it a certain way (i.e. an insane way), Shinji Ikari is one during the destruction of Unit 03. Even though he was doing the destroying. Sorta. [[spoiler: He was in the Eva, meaning he felt EVERYTHING that happened; him ripping his friend to pieces, the blood spraying all over him etc etc, but he wasn't in control of his biomech. His dad was.]] And did it to teach Shinji to follow his orders. Have we mentioned that Gendo is a BASTARD!?
* Variation in {{Claymore}}, where the cutie was already broken before the blood splattering. Her lack of reaction is violently contrast by the horrified reaction of the people around her.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AZcrZGVKvI8 Mr. Kubodera's]] death in ''Literature/{{Another}}'' led to this. [[spoiler:Although that's probably to be expected when you repeatedly stab yourself in the throat in front of all your students]].
* [[spoiler:Kaworu]]'s death scene in ''Anime/RebuildOfEvangelion'' had a variant. While he and [[spoiler:Shinji]] were separated by a wall, the shot from [[spoiler:Kaworu]]'s side created this effect with [[spoiler:Shinji]] visible through the glass wall covered in blood.
[[/folder]]


[[folder:Comic Books]]
* Squee, in ''JohnnytheHomicidalManiac'' is traumatized again and again by witnessing Johnny's gruesome killings, but one time in particular, Johnny pulls out a pedophile's brain and ''throws it at the wall beside Squee'', splashing the blood all over him.
* You know, the flashback where [[Franchise/{{Batman}} Bruce Wayne]]'s parents get [[HarmfulToMinors shot by a mugger]] and [[DramaticNecklaceRemoval his mother's necklace breaks]] and he ends up [[DeathByOriginStory kneeling in their blood]]?
[[/folder]]

[[folder:FanFiction]]
* Used in an {{Series/Atlantis}} fanfiction called 'Jump' where Pythagoras arrives at the house, covered in the blood of a friend of Hercules who has just committed suicide infront of him.
* How the [[DownerBeginning police found Bridgette and Megan]] in ''[[Fanfic/FallinginDeeper Falling in Deeper]]''.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Film]]
* The movie ''{{Doomsday}}'' loved splattering random people with blood.
* In ''Film/KillBill'', the Bride introduces O-Ren through a StartOfDarkness flashback to O-Ren's childhood done in anime style, where Boss Matsumoto and his men kill both of her parents as she hides under the bed. At one point, a sword blade goes through her mother and the bed courtesy of Matsumoto himself, and her mother's blood drips down onto her. And [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RSIET_P9Ckk Luis Bacalov's beautiful score from "The Grand Duel"]] is playing throughout.
** Not to mention the second "chapter" of the movie is entitled, ''The Blood Splattered Bride'', a ShoutOut to a LesbianVampire film with the same name.
*** In fact, [[spoiler:she's splattered with blood for pretty much the majority of the movie.]]
*** [[spoiler: She sure as hell ain't innocent for most of it, though.]]
* The last straw for Film/{{Carrie|1976}} is when a bucket of pig's blood is dumped on her by the AlphaBitch and her JerkJock boyfriend at the prom, after she had been made the prom queen. Carrie proceeds to [[BewareTheNiceOnes snap out]] and turn her telekinetic powers into a weapon of revenge and destruction.
* PlayedForLaughs in ''Film/DraculaDeadAndLovingIt'', when the main character has to stake his fiance's vampiric sister. The resulting blow causes a geyser of blood that coats him and everything in the room in copious amounts of blood. But wait, she's still not quite dead yet...Time for another whack.
** Slightly subverted in that Van Helsing, who is in the same room at the time, comes out without a drop on him as he hid behind a pillar. As he puts it "Everything in life comes down to location, location, location..."
* Used in ''Film/KingdomOfHeaven'', in which a ''horse'' is splattered with so much blood it panics, rears up, and throws its rider.
* Phil, the nervous navigator in ''Film/MemphisBelle'' suffers a HeroicBSOD when an aircraft in front of them explodes, splattering blood and organs over the plexiglas nose...
** Subverted when the windshield is shot through and the bullet hits a bottle of tomato soup sitting on the dashboard, causing the pilot to panic and start screaming about being shot until the co-pilot tastes it (presumably for it having a strange consistency), and declares it to be soup. Very Funny...
*** The co-pilot declares it to be soup after finding a broken thermos, which was formerly filled with soup.
* Played for (deadpan) laughs in Icelandic film ''Noi Albinoi'', in which the protagonist acidentally tips an entire bucket of goose blood onto his father and grandmother.
* A nameless innocent is splattered with blood during Loki's 'smiting' in ''Film/{{Dogma}}''. As the only 'pure' person in the boardroom of executives she is allowed to survive, although Loki does consider shooting her for not blessing him when he sneezed...
* In ''Film/{{Splice}}'', this occurs to the front row of people at the press conference once Fred and Ginger, the two transgenic organisms created by Clive and Elsa for medical research, start fighting each other.
* In ''Film/PitchBlack'', Shazza gets a surprise face-full of blood when Zeke shoots one of the crash survivors, whom he takes to be Riddick about to attack her. ''"Crikey!"''
* Poor, poor ''Film/RepoTheGeneticOpera'''s Shilo Wallace. [[spoiler: Her father and godmother, the only people she's ever met thanks to her dad being a lunatic, are both brutally murdered by the movie's resident MagnificentBastard, and she walks away from the murder site covered in both of their blood.]]
* Probably the closest that the ''viewing audience'' has come to being the innocent in a film is a scene in ''Film/{{Quarantine}}'' where the main character's camera man uses the lens of the InUniverseCamera to beat back an attacker, causing the screen to become covered in blood.
* Jack Regan suffers this in the 1978 ''[[Series/TheSweeney Sweeney]]'' movie when an armed robber evades capture by putting a sawn-off shotgun in his mouth. And it's not just blood either. Regan realistically freaks out and frantically scrubs his face clean.
* The titular character of ''Film/LaReineMargot'' in the poster and the film. While this visually invokes BloodSplatteredWeddingDress, the white gown isn't Margot's wedding dress.
* Film/CaptainPhillips gets splattered with the blood of the pirates that captured him and he goes into shock.
* Played for BlackComedy in ''Film/ShootEmUp''. A woman gives birth in the middle of a shootout. The AntiHero then [[WhenAllYouHaveIsAHammer cuts the umbilical cord with a point-blank gunshot]], splattering her face with blood. She's not happy.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Literature]]
* In ''[[EndersGame Shadow Of The Hegemon]]'', Petra is covered in the blood, bone, and brains of her would-be rescuers after her kidnapper, Achilles, reveals himself and shoots them. She refuses to move or speak until she is allowed to wash the blood off.
* ''Literature/WarriorCats'': Lionblaze. Although most of the times he ends up splattered with blood, he's responsible, the times in ''Long Shadows'' when [[spoiler:Tigerstar shows him visions of himself killing Heathertail in a series of violent fashions]] may count.
** Generally averted with ''everyone else''.
* In ''Sten'' by Allan Cole and Chris Bunch, first aid training had the recruits practice on a robot simulating a wounded fellow soldier. If the recruit wasn't quick enough, an "artery ruptured," spraying him with simulated blood.
-->"The dye used in that blood won't wear off for two days. Maybe that'll help you think about how you'd feel if that dummy had really been your teammate."
* In ''Literature/TheRoad'', this happens when [[NamelessNarrative the man]] shoots a marauder.
* Creator/HenryDarger's ''[[Literature/InTheRealmsOfTheUnreal The Story of the Vivian Girls in the Realms of the Unreal]]'' has lots of this, with illustrations.
* Katniss gets introduced to the reality of being in ''Literature/TheHungerGames'' when a boy that she's involved in a shoving match over a backpack suddenly coughs blood in her face - after being knifed from behind by another tribute.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Live-Action TV]]
* ''Series/{{Angel}}'': Lindsey in ''Blind Date''. He's hardly innocent, but he ''does'' look appropriately traumatized when the man next to him is shot and it ''is'' one of the rare occasions he's trying to do the right thing.
* D.L.'s murder in ''Series/{{Heroes}}'' resulted in Niki being sprayed with his blood.
* [[GrossOutShow Played for laughs]] in ''Series/RedDwarf'' episode "Justice", when Lister's pus-filled head burst. We just hear a splattering noise, and then the Cat enters, covered in blood and pus, and looking traumatised.
* In ''{{Lost}}'' an extra named Doug is shot by mercenaries and has his blood sprayed on Sawyer (who, it's worth noting, is in no sense of the word innocent).
** They also do this in Season 1 when Arzt is blown up by dynamite. Hurley, Locke, Jack and Kate are covered with pieces of him, leading Hurley to exclaim "You've got a piece of . . . Arzt . . . on you."
* Played for [[{{Squick}} squicky]] laughs in the ''Series/{{Supernatural}}'' episode, "Mystery Spot". Sam is going slightly mental from watching Dean die over and over again and is hacking apart the Mystery Spot with an axe while Dean and the tied up owner wait. Dean goes over to try and get Sam to calm down, they have an offscreen arguement and then Dean's blood splatters all over the owner.
** Used more seriously in another ''Series/{{Supernatural}}'' episode, "Bloodlust". Dean kills a vampire brutally (by holding it down and cutting its head off with a circular saw, offscreen) and when he looks back up at his brother, who's staring at him, his face is splattered in blood.
** Another notable usage occurs in the AlternateUniverse episode "It's a Terrible Life", when Sam Wesson gets a bloody introduction to the finer points of monster-hunting.
* ''Studio60OnTheSunsetStrip'' - but only because a character was acting in a film that had a fatal gun accident.
* Series/{{Dexter}} and his brother watch their mother and her drug-dealing buddies chopped to pieces with a chainsaw. Then they're left there for days. Neither of them grow up to be well-balanced individuals.
** The first time Dexter gets a flash of the repressed memory of his mother's murder at a similarly gruesome crime scene, it causes him to lose his cool and fall right into a pool of blood, leaving him covered in it. While adult Dexter is certainly not an innocent, the image works as a visual reference to the event that left him psychologically damaged.
* ''Series/{{NCIS}}'': When [[spoiler: [[BoomHeadshot Kate]]]] is shot, Tony is sprayed with her blood. One of the saddest shots of the series.
* B.J. goes through this before even arriving at the 4077th ''Series/{{Mash}}'' in "Welcome to Korea", when he, Hawkeye, and Radar stop to help a group of soldiers on the side of the road.
* In ''Series/StateOfPlay'', Della moves from the "protect the story" angle to the "we need to help the police" side of the argument when the detective she'd gotten to know as a source was shot by a sniper in front of her.
* How about Sookie in like every. single. episode of ''TrueBlood''? To her credit, she usually gets over it pretty quickly. Or maybe that's just because it usually happens right at the end of the episode.
* ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'': Your shirt." To explain: [[spoiler:When Tara]] is fatally shot, [[spoiler:her]] [[TooGoodForThisSinfulEarth final concern]] is for [[spoiler:Willow]]'s ruined, blood-splattered shirt.
* An early episode of ''{{Dollhouse}}'' had a flashback of Alpha's first rampage, during which we see Echo in the house showers drenched in the blood of the slaughtered people around her. Of course, being a doll, she is fairly oblivious to the fact that she should be traumatised (and barely even aware that there is anything wrong with the dead).
** The same episode opens with Topher, usually a self-contained smart-ass, covered in blood and stammering like a little kid about the killings he's just witnessed. [[spoiler: Topher gets this again in 2.11 when, not two minutes after kissing Bennett for the first time, he ends up with her brains all over his face.]]
* Happens to a nosy reporter in an episode of {{Sanctuary}}. Interestingly, her cameraman seems more traumatized by it than she is.
* In the opening of the ''Series/CriminalMinds'' episode "Coda", an autistic boy is seen in profile, walking to the bus stop to catch his ride, just as he does at exactly the same time every day. It's only when the camera pans around to the front of him that it's revealed one side of his face is splattered with blood; one of his parents had just been critically wounded in their home and the other, kidnapped.
** J.J. got splattered with someone else's blood in a season five episode.
* A very angsty and emotional ''Series/{{CSI}}'' ep had Grissom covered in [[spoiler: Warrick's blood]] for a couple of scenes after [[spoiler: Warrick died]]. Grissom had held him to his chest and it got all over.
* There's an episode of ''MadMen'' where Smitty the copywriter is riding a lawnmower around the office. Later Lois the secretary, one of the ne'er-do-wells of the office, takes a turn and accidentally runs over the foot of one of the British executives who have bought the company. Wacky hijinks suddenly turn into buckets of blood all over the other executives and copywriters. [[{{Squick}} Someone's still scrubbing blood off the walls hours later]], and poor Guy loses his foot and is considered to have lost his whole career because of it.
* An episode of ''Forensic Files'' had a child arrive to preschool in his pajamas covered in blood. His grandparents had been murdered and he ran the two miles to the school.
* In episode four of OrphanBlack, Helena leaves a little boy basically covered in blood after breaking into his house to clean her wounds.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Music Videos]]
* In the music video for We Are Scientists "It's A Hit". This is an example it being used as a nondiscretion shot, as we clearly see the fatal punch land, and then cut to the LittlestCancerPatient sprayed with his hero's blood.
* Occurs at the end of the music video for Music/PearlJam's "Jeremy", when the title character [[spoiler:blows his brains out in front of his class]].
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Theme Parks]]
* Many of the gory houses at the Universal Studios' Theatre/HalloweenHorrorNights event include hidden water sprayers to simulate blood splattering on the guests. HHN Orlando's The People Under the Stairs in 1992 actually splattered guests with thick, red fake blood.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Video Games]]
* Cloud plays the part of the blood-splattered innocent in Crisis Core: ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'', though in his case he wasn't actually within range when Zack was shot, and ended up with blood on his face because he was embraced by his friend before he died. The image was still just as striking, though.
* One of the most striking images in ''VideoGame/{{Xenogears}}'' is that of a young Fei, his face splattered with the blood of the [[spoiler:mother]] that protected him.
* Helena in ''VideoGame/DeadOrAlive'' 2, this occurred when her mother [[TakingTheBullet took a bullet meant for her]].
* ''MetalGearSolid4''. All the backstories of the Beauties, but Crying Wolf's especially. She was found carrying the corpse of her baby brother, whom she had accidentally killed, through the wild of Africa.
** Taken to extremes with Laughing Octopus who was forced to bathe in the blood of her own family, who she was forced to kill herself by a cult of crazies, all while being forced to laugh while she did it.
* In ''VideoGame/DragonAgeOrigins'', if you choose to execute [[spoiler:Loghain]], the moment he gets decapitated is the moment his daughter gets treated to an authentic [[OverdrawnAtTheBloodbank Dragon Age blood shower]]. Honestly, it's a bit [[Narm/DragonAgeOrigins Narmy]], particularly since everyone else somehow stays completely clean.
* [[spoiler:Coach Oleander's]] backstory in ''VideoGame/{{Psychonauts}}'' has him [[spoiler:watching his father (a butcher) chop up his beloved pet bunnies for food.]]
* Horribly subverted in ''TheKingOfFighters''. [[spoiler: We see a little Leona splattered in someone's blood in a flashback to her past. It's her father's blood. ''And she's the one who killed him when under Goenitz's MoreThanMindControl, as well as everyone in their village''.]]
* In ''VideoGame/TheWalkingDead'', Lilly gets covered in [[spoiler: her father's]] blood after his head is smashed in with a salt lick.
* In ''VideoGame/BioshockInfinite'', Elizabeth is covered in blood after [[spoiler:stabbing Daisy Fitzroy]].
* In ''VideoGame/MogekoCastle'', Yonaka gets splattered with blood when [[spoiler:Nega-Mogeko gets shot]] right in front of her.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Webcomics]]
* Played for laughs in [[http://sluggy.com/daily.php?date=040628 this]] ''SluggyFreelance'' strip.
* Mikaila Adelier of {{Unsounded}} is splattered with her father's blood as he attempts to defend her [[spoiler: he failed.]].
* Played for dark comedy in [[http://pbfcomics.com/?cid=PBF050-An_End_to_Gopher_Trouble.gif this]] ''PerryBibleFellowship'' comic.
* [[http://keychain.patternspider.net/archive/koc0008.html An aversion]] is played for laughs in KeychainOfCreation- we never actually ''see'' Misho covered in blood, as the comic cuts straight from the cause of splattering to Marena finishing washing him.
* In ''TheWaterPhoenixKing'', this is subverted [[strike: for laughs]] as everyone who wasn't there ''thinks'' Anthem is this, instead of a combination of [[TheBerserker the adrenaline having worn off]] and her EmotionlessGirl shell (itself [[SoleSurvivor partly attributable to prior PTSD]]) finally cracking.
* In one story arc in ''BetterDays'', the police discover that one of the people in Fisk's neighborhood is a terrorist. When they corner and shoot him, he was in the process of having sex with someone. Cue a panel of a very traumatized heyna-lady, covered in bloodsplatters.
* [[http://www.drowtales.com/mainarchive.php?order=chapters&id=343 Ariel]], in ''{{Drowtales}}'' gets covered in blood after she's forced to kill [[spoiler:Miir'kin Vel'Vlozress]] [[DropTheHammer quite gruesomely]] as part a SadisticChoice, the other choice being to kill her cousin and one of her few allies. She's clearly in shock for several pages after this.
* In {{Homestuck}}, [[TheWoobie Tavros]] gets absolutely covered in [[spoiler: Vriska's]] blood when she dies. [[spoiler: [[CameBackStrong Temporarily, anyway.]]]]
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Web Original]]
* ''TheOnion'' article "[[http://www.theonion.com/content/news/blood_blood_everywhere Blood...Blood Everywhere]]".
* Occurs constantly on ''HappyTreeFriends'', especially whenever Flippy comes out of AxCrazy rage mode.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Western Animation]]
* Happens to Butters in ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'', during an eighth season episode called "You Got F'd in the A." In a flashback, Butters loses control of one of his shoes while tap-dancing, causing an accident in which eight people are killed. Their blood splatters all over him as he looks on in horror. [[spoiler:The incident is effectively repeated at the end of the episode, when Butters, having finally overcome the trauma, agrees to tap-dance in a competition... only to lose his shoe again, killing the opposing team and their coach.]]
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Real Life]]
* [[UsefulNotes/JohnFKennedy Jackie Kennedy]] in her pink suit, November 22, 1963.
* One of the most vivid images from the current Iraq War is of [[http://www.wunrn.com/news/2008/08_08/07_08_08/072808_face.htm a blood-splattered little girl]] crying as a US soldier walks past her-- her parents were killed moments earlier. That's their blood.
