Doctor waiting for family at parade describes treating gunshot victim moments after shooting began

Dr. Wendy Binstock Rush, an anesthesiologist who was at the Fourth of July parade where the shooting unfolded, said several people with medical training tried to help those who were shot during the event in Highland Park, Illinois.

A suspected gunman killed six people and injured dozens of others when he opened fire into the parade crowd from the roof of a building. Police say the suspected shooter used a “high-powered rifle” to fire more than 70 rounds on Monday.

Binstock Rush said she was waiting for her family to arrive at the parade when the shooting began. She said it seemed like the gunfire was close to where she was standing.

“Anybody who had, you know, any medical background from first aid to physicians all jumped into action to do whatever they could to help the situation,” she told CNN on Tuesday.

When the gunfire stopped, she identified herself as an anesthesiologist physician and was led to what she says was the “most critical person at the time” — a man who was “profusely bleeding” from his abdomen, she said.

“CPR was in progress. People were holding pressure on an abdominal wound that he was profusely bleeding from,” she said, adding that they continued CPR and started IV fluids to try to offset the blood he was losing.

Eventually, paramedics showed up and put the man in an ambulance.

“We took him into the hospital, and we spent about another 20 to 30 minutes working on him, but unfortunately, he had lost way too much blood and his injuries were too severe and he did perish at the hospital,” she said. News Source CNN
