ORLANDO, FL (WTVM) - A number of people who were at the scene of the devastating mass shooting at an Orlando nightclub are telling their stories of what happened. Now, a surgeon at the hospital where many people were treated has told his story with his shoes.
Dr. Joshua Corsa, a surgical resident at Orlando Regional Medical Center, was one of the many doctors who treated patients on June 12, where 49 people were killed and 53 were injured by the shooter Omar Mateen.
Corsa's shoes, which he said he'd only had less than a week, are now covered in blood. He posted a picture of his shoes on his Facebook page on Monday, and his message is displayed as a sign of the devastation located inside Pulse nightclub. He said his shoes were photographed next to his dirty scrubs in his office.
"For on June 12, after the worst of humanity reared its evil head, I saw the best of humanity of come fighting right back. I never want to forget that night," Corsa wrote.
