San Pedro Sula, Honduras, has made it to the top of the list of the world’s most dangerous cities (outside of war zones) for three consecutive years, with an annual homicide rate of 187 per 100,000 people. Reporting crime in Honduras is considered a high-risk job — according to the Honduran National Human Rights Committee, at least 47 journalists and media executives have been murdered between 2003 and 2014.
In this extra scene, VICE News spent the night in an overcrowded emergency room of the Mario Catarino Rivas hospital in San Pedro Sula, where cases of bullet wounds are all too common.
