Dear Readers: This inspirational story via HillBuzz, about Daniel Henandez. Hernandez is the newly hired aide to Gabrielle Giffords, who was at the horrific event in Tucson this weekend. Instead of fleeing from the gunfire, he ran toward it to help others.
While others around him panicked and fled in terror, Daniel went running TOWARDS the gunfire to help those who had fallen. He checked pulses. He propped up heads so people would not choke on their own blood. He taught people how to apply pressure to mitigate bleeding.
Using his hand, Hernandez applied pressure to the entry wound on her forehead. He pulled her into his lap, holding her upright against him so she wouldn’t choke on her own blood. Giffords was conscious, but quiet.
Certainly, this was an act of grace and courage that should be an inspiration to us all.
God bless and keep Daniel Hernandez and all the victims and their family members.
