My sister-in-law Debra Cerimele caught this somber moment as Mandela's body was taken from his home a few blocks from hers in Johannesburg early this morning. With her iPad in hand and still wearing a nightgown, Debra captured this candid image of the motorcade passing, a police helicopter hovering overhead and police standing along the route saluting as an extraordinary man and his home became enshrined for the ages. The video is unusual because the media was clustered around Mandela's house and did not see him being transported down Central Street, past Debra's house and the foundation that bears Mandela's name, which is across the street. A policeman on the street confirmed that the motorcade was transporting Mandela's body.
