Giffords` husband says he thought wife was killed
Tucson: The husband of Rep
Gabrielle Giffords says he believed for about 20 minutes that his wife was dead after viewing a mistaken television news report that said his wife had been fatally shot.
Astronaut Mark Kelly told ABC`s Diane Sawyer in an
interview that aired yesterday night that he learned that
Giffords had been shot on January 8 when he received a phone
call from her chief of staff.
He says he rushed aboard a friend`s plane to fly to
Arizona, and while aboard the plane saw the TV report. He says
he ran to the plane`s bathroom and broke down.
Kelly says he learned that she was alive when he called
Giffords` mother, who was outside the operating room at the
Tucson hospital where the congresswoman was being treated.
