Hero intern may have saved Giffords’ life


And now a word about people who made a difference with their bravery, knowledge, and care for the fellows.

A calm and composed congressional intern who underwent basic nursing training while in high school said Monday that he knew that if U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords was to have any chance of surviving her gunshot wound, he would have to stem the flow of blood coming from her head.

“I could tell she had a very severe gunshot but I was just trying do my best until emergency medical services could arrive,” Daniel Hernandez, 20, told TODAY’s Matt Lauer via satellite.

Thus, Sarah Palin needs to label her rhetoric honestly:
