Las Vegas Shooting Victim Reunited with Man Who Saved Him in Emotional Video - Watch Now

Today show host Savannah Guthrie interviewed one of the survivors of the Las Vegas shooting, Tom McIntosh, who was shot in the leg.

Tom told the story of what happened after he was shot, where a stranger named James Lawson stopped to help him, fixed a tourniquet around his wound, and waited with him until he was able to get to the hospital.

Savannah then surprised Tom and said James was on site to meet. The two reunited for the first time since James helped Tom.

“I wouldn’t have [made it]. By the time I got over the wall, my pants were soaked and my shoes were full of blood. So I wouldn’t have made it. I know I wouldn’t have, so I’m very thankful that James was there to help me,” Tom said.

James, who was in the Army Reserves and has EMT training, recalled, “He kept wanting to not lose his foot and I kept reassuring him of that. And he’s still got it.”

At least 59 people have died and well over 500 more were injured in unspeakable act of violence.

Our continued thoughts are with those affected by the terrible tragedy.

Megyn Kelly Accidentally Snubs Hoda Kotb During 'Today Show' Debut (Video)

Megyn Kelly made her first appearance as an NBC news anchor on The Today Show on Thursday (June 1), but she made a small error while saying hello to the hosts!

The 46-year-old former Fox News anchor was appearing live from St. Petersburg to tease her upcoming interview with Russian president Vladimir Putin.

Matt Lauer, Savannah Guthrie, and Hoda Kotb were sitting at the anchor desk in New York City while welcoming Megyn to the show for the first time as a team member.

“Hey guys, it’s great to be with you, Matt and Savannah,” she said. When she realized her name wasn’t said, Hoda put her hands into the air in a “what about me?” way!

It’s likely that Megyn didn’t know Hoda was at the desk as people who appear live via satellite usually are just given an audio feed, not a video feed.

Rachel Dolezal Identifies as Black, Not African-American

Rachel Dolezal is back in the media while promoting her new book “In Full Color” and she corrected Today‘s Savannah Guthrie during a question about her racial identity.

Savannah asked why she says she is a member of the African-American community and pointed out that this could be the disconnect that the public has with her story.

“I don’t identify as African-American, I identify as black,” Rachel said. “I am part of the pan-African diaspora.”

“I definitely feel like, in America, even though race is a social construct and we’ve acknowledged this in academia and in science, there’s still a line drawn in the sand, there still are sides, politically there’s a black side and a white side, and I stand unapologetically on the black side,” Rachel added. “I stand with my own internal sense and values. I stand with my sons. I stand with my sister. And I also stand there really with the greater cause of challenging the myth of white supremacy.”
