Kansas shooting : Young American who braved to save Indians While the family of Hyderabad engineer Srinivas Kanchibotla, who was shot by an American in Kansas, US, is suffering his loss, we should not miss to know about heroic efforts of Ion Grillot, who actually tried to save him from the shooter Adam Purinton (51).

In the process of stopping the Adam, Ian was also injured as he was shot in hand, chest and is in no-danger condition now.

As reported earlier, Srinivas and his friend Alok Madisani were gun shot by Adam at a bar in Olathe, Kansas. Soon after shouting racial slurs against both the Indians, the 51-year old shooter took out his gun and started to fire at Srinivas. After striking 9 bullets at his hand, chest and neck, the brave Ian thought the magazine was finished and jumped over the gunman to stop him.

Luckily, in the attacks, Alok survived with some minor injures and he, along with his wife who is 5-month old pregnant, visited Ian at hospital and enquired about his condition, besides thanking & appreciating his fearless attempt.

The just 24 Ian Grillot, who was admitted in KU hospital soon after the attack, says, 'I'm very grateful that one of the gentlemen is fine and alive' and adds further, 'I was just doing what anyone should have done. It's not about where he's from, or ethnicity. We're all humans." - that's a heartwarming statement from him. Isn't it?
