As part of the Taking Your Pulse project, 90.7 News recorded a live town hall in front of an audience at the Orlando Regional Medical Center:  the hospital where most of the victims from the Pulse nightclub shooting were treated.

Registered Nurse Libby Brown and Dr. Josh Corsa, senior surgical registrar with ORMC share their stories of how the medical first responders worked round the clock to save the lives of the injured.  We also hear from survivor Christopher Hansen, who escaped from the club after the shooting began, then went back to help rescue the wounded.
