The June 12 Orlando nightclub shooting shook the nation, especially in the affected communities Florida. One of the state's most famous residents, Tim Tebow, left his vacation in the Bahamas to visit an ex-high school teammate wounded in the attack.
Rodney Sumter Jr., 27, was shot three times by 29-year-old assailant Omar Mateen while bartending at the nightclub Pulse. Bullets struck him in each arm and his back, half an inch from his spine.
According to CNN Wire, Sumter escaped the bar and was found covered in blood by Joshua McGill, a nursing student, who fled unscathed. McGill turned his shirt into a tourniquet for Sumter's arm and applied pressure all the way to the hospital.
Tebow and Sumter played together at Nease High School in Ponte Vedra, Florida, where Tebow was the quarterback and Sumter a wide receiver. Sumter went on to play college football for FCS Jacksonville University, while Tebow became a Heisman Trophy winner and two-time national champion at Florida.
Sumter's famous visitors have also included Florida Governor Rick Scott, two-time World Series champion Johnny Damon, Ballon d'or winner Kaká, Pro Bowler Jameis Winston and Florida State football coach Jimbo Fisher.
