Gay Intern Saves Congresswoman Giffords
on Monday & was signing people into the "Congress on Your Corner"
event on Saturday when he heard gunshots. He ran toward the shots
to see if he could help & was the first person to give medical
attention to Congresswoman Giffords, D-Ariz.
Fortunately Hernandez received medical training in high school to
be a certified nursing assistant. First he tried to reposition her by
propping her up against his chest while holding her steady so she
could breathe. Hernandez said he moved her because her position
put her at risk of inhaling her own blood. After moving her, he
applied pressure to her head to stop the blood loss.
The Congresswoman still remains in critical condition but Daniel’s
quick thinking saved Giffords life. We commend his actions.
