Heroes In The Tucson Shooting

  There were many heroes in the shooting in Tucson, Arizona.  Among them, a college intern just 5 days on the job-- who applied pressure to stop Arizona Representative Gabriella Giffords from loosing too much blood, then waited in the ambulance with her so she wouldn't be alone; and even called her husband and parents for her. There was also a group of men who-- instead of running from the bullets, ran toward them-- jumping on top of the gunman and holding him down till police arrived. Police say if it hadn't been for those men and several others--  many more people would have been hurt. When it was all said and done, 20 people were shot;  6 are dead. On the uinjured list is Arizona congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords; shot in the head. Her husband is Nasa astronaut Mark Kelly-- and his twin brother Scott is the Commander of the International Space Station. The college Giffords attended is Cornell University, in Ithaca, New York. The alleged gunman, Jared Loughner, was captured alive and will make a court appearance today.
