“I felt God put me at the club and made me stay behind…”
Amidst the aftermath of the heart-wrenching mass shooting in Orlando, a few heroic stories are piercing this dark tragedy with a much-needed ray of light. One such story is that of Joshua McGill, a man who believes God put him at that club Sunday morning in order to save a young man named Rodney.
Since Love What Matters posted his emotional account to Facebook, thousands across the web have been inspired by the bravery and faith that McGill showed in the middle of the shooting.
The post reads:
Joshua McGill was in attendance at the Orlando nightclub during the horrific shooting yesterday. Hiding behind a car, he tended to and rescued a stranger known as 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.
