CAROLINA BEACH, NC (WECT) – Kim Munley, a survivor of the Fort Hood shooting, spoke at the at North Carolina Homicide Investigator's Conference Tuesday in Carolina Beach.
She discussed her experience helping to take down the Fort Hood shooter, Nidal Hasan, and also told law enforcement officers about a device that saved her life, the tourniquet.
Munley says every first responder should have one. Not only did it help her, but it helped Detective Michael Spencer, who was shot in the Creekwood Community on October 10, 2013.
Spencer was Munley's special guest at the conference, and he received a standing ovation.
At the end of her presentation, the conference organizers announced they will be giving every officer a tourniquet.
"It sent chills down my spine to know that every single person in this conference will be leaving with a tourniquet and instructed on how to use it," said Munley. "It just makes me feel comfortable. Maybe another life will be saved because of this."
