74. Really?
I don't think the visuals are good enough to notice the children. The picture I've seen don't look like children or anything, it's just hearsay by the people who decided to put an arrow and mark it "children". Not to mention this was after going over the video who knows how many times and not in the heat of battle paying attention to a lot of other things.

So whether or not it was full of insurgents was up in the air to the trigger happy pilots in the video.

Who knows what the father saw happen, but if he knew that chopper was what shot at those men, it would be patently stupid to drive and start helping a group of men who you don't know why they were shot at with the chopper still hovering overhead and with your children with you. That's why I'm guessing the father had no idea the chopper shot them. In fact, I'm guessing the reporters didn't even know who was shooting at them at first.
