Las Vegas victim shot in leg stands when Pres. Trump visits hospital

What this Las Vegas victim did when Trump visited him is getting millions of views

"When he got shot", said Lenea Sampson, "I said I can not leave this boy".

In a video that has now gone viral, Gunderson can be seen painfully getting up from his hospital bed to greet First Lady Melania Trump.

Fifty-eight people lost their lives in the massacre at the country music festival, the worst mass shooting in modern American history.

Thomas Gunderson, a 28-year-old survivor of the shooting, received a personal visit in the hospital with his family from Trump and the First Lady.

Entering Gunderson's room, Trump said, "Hey, this guy looks tough to me, ' the president said as he shook Gunderson's hand".
