Exclusive: Daniel Hernández 'Hispanic Hero' Talks with Terra

 

Meet Daniel Hernandez, the 20-year-old intern that helped save Rep. Gabrielle Giffords' life after last weekend's deadly shooting in Arizona.

The University of Arizona junior was praised by both President Obama and Arizona GOP Gov. Jan Brewer as a hero for the first aid he rendered to Giffords and others on the scene Saturday.

Hernandez, who had been working for Giffords for just five days, rushed to the congresswoman's side after the shooting.

In recent interview with Terra, Hernandez stated that, "Instead of attacking people, we should be constructive for the country."

Many see him as a hero, while Hernandez insist he was not a hero.
