Fortunate Soldier

This video has been circulating for a little bit and is really remarkable. It was actually filmed by Iraqi insurgents who were hiding in a minivan. They were armed with a sniper rifle and were trying to pick off soldiers. Unfortunately for this band of terrorists, they picked the wrong guy. After getting hit square in the chest and knocked backward from the bullet, Pfc Stephen Tschiderer, a medic, sprang to his feet. He was able to able identify the sniper team and U.S. forces then hunted them down. On top of it all, Tshiderer, administered first aid to the very insurgents who tried to kill him. The best part of the video is to hear the terrorists' voices and suprise when they see our guy spring back to his feet.
