Former CBS News correspondent Bruce Dunning dies

Bruce Dunning -  a longtime CBS News reporter who captured one of the tragically iconic  images of the Vietnam war, of desperate people charging a U.S. plane leaving Da Nang - has died, the network says. He was 73 and died from injuries suffered in a fall, per CBS. His famous report, which can be seen here, is of the once-seen/not-soon-forgotten variety, and was to become for many the very last TV view of a decade-long war.   "Back from Da Nang" aired March 29, 1975, while the war would officially end the following month. Dunning spent 35 years with the network, mostly in the Far East, per CBS.
