In an incredible story of survival and military class, the below video shows the amazing moment that Spc. Stephen Tschiderer was hit with a sniper’s bullet in Iraq and the moments after.
Spc. Stephen Tschiderer was hit in the chest by a sniper that surprisingly was located quickly by members of his unit.
“It’s not a big deal that I got shot, I’m a Soldier, and Soldiers get shot every day.” said Tschiderer.
A chase followed. US troops shot at the tires of the van that the would-be assassin’s tried to escape in. One of the rounds hit the sniper in the toe.
After a chase on foot, the terrorist was detained and put back in the humvee. Without hesitation, Tschiderer – still wounded himself- treated the man who just moments before tried to end his life.
“He was hurt and I had to do my job,” he said.
An incredible tale and a classic video:
