An article from Sunny Skyz about one of the heroes at the Orlando nightclub shooting:
Joshua McGill was in attendance at the Orlando nightclub during the horrific shooting. Hiding behind a car, he tended to and rescued a stranger named Rodney.
The stranger stumbled to Joshua, mumbling, “Can you help me?”
McGill quickly grabbed the man as he said, “I think I got shot.”
“Don’t worry, I got you,” McGill responded.
Josh was told by police to keep the man conscious no matter what.
“Hey, man, my name is Josh, What do you do?” He said.
“My name is Rodney. I’m from Jacksonville,” Rodney whispered.
“I don’t know if you’re religious or not, but I’ll say a prayer with you,” McGill said.
Recounting the tale on Facebook, McGill wrote:
“There was a very tragic thing that happened tonight. Thoughts and prayers for everyone at Pulse or that know anyone that was at Pulse. It was very crazy and a traumatic experience. I’m very thankful I got away safe and a lot of other people I know and care about did as well. I hid under a car and found one of the victims that was shot. I tied my shirt and his shirt over his wounds to stop the bleeding and got him secretly to the nearest officer who then transported us to the ER. Words cannot and will not describe the feeling of that. Being covered in blood.. Trying to save a guy’s life that I don’t even know regardless that I’m fine.. just traumatized. The things I had to say to the guy and make promises I didn’t know I would be able to keep or not to keep him conscious while holding him as tight as I could and blood everywhere on me. Saying a prayer for him and letting him know I will be here waiting for him. It sucks because all I got was his name and I can’t even see if he’s okay because I’m not related. If anyone knows of a guy named Rodney that was shot and injured tonight…
