An intern working with Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, said she responded to him while he administered first aid, after she was shot in the head at a Tucson supermarket.

Daniel Hernandez told Christiane Amanpour on ABC’s This Week programme, “she was able to hold my hand when I asked her if she could hear me” but continued that he “wasn’t able to get any words from her”.


Daniel Hernandez ran towards the shots instead of away. He used some training in triage to help the Congresswoman and stayed with her all the way to the hospital, holding her hand to let her communicate.
In times of danger, most of us think only about our own safety and run away from the source of trouble but we are all often saved by the small percentage of people who run towards the trouble.
