NBC TODAY’s Savannah Guthrie tags along as Gabby Giffords skydives to mark shooting anniversary
Gabby Giffords went skydiving to mark the third anniversary of the Tucson shooting where she was shot in the head.
TODAY’s Savannah Guthrie got to tag along for the ride.
“Today, Gabby Giffords is going to do something that is incredibly courageous and inspiring and a little bit surprising,” Savannah Guthrie said on TODAY.com. “She’s going to sky-dive here in Arizona to commemorate the three-year anniversary and all of the progress that she’s made.”
“She is an incredibly brave person,” Guthrie said. “She’s someone who used to love to sky-dive before this shooting took place. She hasn’t done it since.”
Giffords, the former Arizona congresswoman who was injured in the 2011 mass shooting that killed six and injured 12 others, shared how she continues to overcome adversity.
