Airman saves life in Odessa, Texas, amidst mass shooting

A police cruiser and civilian vehicle sit at an intersection following a mass shooting incident in which the civilian driver sustained three gunshot wounds Aug. 31, 2019, in Odessa, Texas. Dr. Nathaniel Ott, an Air Force Reserve instructor in Air University’s LeMay Center Joint Integration directorate, rushed out to the scene after hearing the shots from outside the ER in which he works in his civilian-capacity career. He worked with an officer and paramedic to turn a police cruiser into an impromptu ambulance to transport the victim to a nearby trauma center for treatment. (Courtesy photo)
