First Responders, Aurora Theater Shooting
Sadly, Colorado's history now contains a chapter about last year's mass shooting in Aurora. Thankfully, that story also includes tales of heroism by the men and women who first responded to the tragedy. Knowing that time can be the most important factor in saving a critically injured patient, Aurora police officers loaded gravely wounded victims into the backs of their squad cars and drove them to nearby hospitals themselves. To those early responders: Thank you.
