During a routine patrol in Baghdad, Tschiderer, a medic, was shot in the chest by an enemy sniper, hiding in a van just 75 yards away. The incident was videotaped by the insurgents.
Tschiderer, was knocked to the ground from the impact, but he wasnt killed, thanks to the protective body armor he was wearing. I knew I was hit, said Tschiderer, but was uncertain of the damage or location of the hit. The only thing going through my mind was to take cover and locate the snipers position."
After a few seconds, Tschiderer jumped to his feet, shot back, then took cover and located the sniper.
Other soldiers from Tschiderers unit joined him and together they tracked down the wounded sniper by following the blood trail he left as he and another attacker fled the scene.
The sniper was handcuffed and given medical aid by the very man he had tried to kill, Tschiderer.
