Daniel Hernandez, the intern for Arizona Congressman Gabby Giffords who heroically ran towards the sound of gunfire when Giffords and others were shot by a deranged gunman, is throwing out the first pitch at tonight’s All-Star Game at Chase Field in Phoenix, Arizona. Hernandez, a trained nursing assistant, was instrumental in saving Giffords’ life, elevating her head and staunching the flow of blood from a head wound until paramedics arrived.
