"[Name] was _among_ the _two_ people killed."

Shouldn't that be:

"... _between_ the _two_ people killed"?

Of course, the caption should read:

"... _one of_ the two people killed."

How in the world is that not obvious to The New York Times?!
All say, "How hard it is that we have to die!"---a strange complaint to
come from the mouths of people who have had to live.
