Meet Daniel Hernández: Giffords’ Intern with Nerves of Steel
Daniel Hernández, 20, comes off as a soft-spoken, intelligent young man. But it was his steel and calm — literally under fire — that saved Rep. Gabrielle Giffords’ life.
In an interview with Fox News Latino, Hernández spoke about Saturday’s tragedy and opened up about himself and his family. The tale of Hernández running towards the gunfire amid mayhem, stands out as one of the few bright spots from such a dark day. But the question remains, why did he do it?
“My main goal was to try to make sure the congresswoman and everyone was ok,” the University of Arizona junior said. “When I saw injured people I tried to tend to them as good as I could, until emergency personnel arrived.”
