One of USA’s most famous presidents and an important world figure, John F. Kennedy was born on May 29, 1917 Brookline, Massachusetts, USA, as John Fitzgerald Kennedy.

John F. Kennedy a.k.a. Jack a.k.a. JFK was the 35th President of the USA from January 1961 to November 22, 1963 – the day he was assassinated at a public event.

This rare video shows the exact moment – at 5:59 minutes – when the leader was shot at when he drove through in a car with his wife Jacqueline Kennedy (later Onassis). He was shot at twice with a sniper, and was taken to hospital where he was pronounced dead. Many movies have been made on JFK and his unfortunate assassination, but this real video is a must watch for those who weren’t around when the incident took place. Watch it in the player below, as a tribute to John F. Kennedy on his birthday.
