GOOD NEWS PHOTO: Tim Tebow Visits Ex-Teammate Wounded in Orlando Attack
One of the victims of the Orlando terror attack got a very special visit from Tim Tebow.
The former Denver Bronco paid a visit to Rodney Sumter Jr., one of his former high school teammates.
Sumter, 27, is recovering after being shot three times in the June 12 attack on the Pulse nightclub, where he worked as a bartender.
Sumter caught passes from Tebow as a wide receiver at Nease High School in Ponte Vedra, Fla.
Sumter went on to play college football at Jacksonville University, while Tebow went on to win two national titles and a Heisman Trophy for the Florida Gators.
"My high school quarterback left the Bahamas to come and see me. Tebow has always been an awesome person," Sumter wrote on Instagram.
Sumter, a father of twin girls, was shot in the back and in both arms as he tried to escape the mass shooting.
A nursing student, Joshua McGill, noticed Sumter lying on the floor and used his shirt as a tourniquet to help slow the bleeding.
With no available ambulance to transport Sumter, McGill laid underneath Sumter in the back of a police car as he was rushed to the hospital.
"The instructions they told me were pretty simple. I had to lay on my back in the backseat. They laid him on top of me, and I had to wrap my arms around him and put pressure on the gunshot wound on his back, and hold him on the way to the ER,” McGill told Action News JAX.
