Michigan Man Shot In Las Vegas 'Grateful' To Be Home

Oct 4, 2017

A suburban Detroit man who was shot in the leg in Las Vegas says he was greatly aided by an off-duty police officer and an off-duty nurse who stabilized his injury.

Lee Dorchak, a Warren resident, was in a wheelchair Wednesday at Detroit Metropolitan Airport.

He tells WJBK-TV that he's "grateful" to be home and adds: "There's a lot of people that can't say that."

Dorchak says a police officer and a nurse cut his jeans and turned a belt into a tourniquet.

He was among the hundreds who were injured Sunday night at a country music concert outside a Las Vegas casino.

More than 50 people were killed.

Dorchak says he's ready for the challenge of recovery.
