Compton Heroic Acts: Deputy Shot in Face Applying Tourniquet to Her Partner

As the manhunt continues for the gunman who shot two LA County Sheriff's Deputies, new surveillance video has surfaced of the female officer applying a tourniquet to her badly injured partner even though she had been shot in the face.

"She helped the other wounded deputy, got on the radio, provided medical care, got him to a place of safety 'cause they didn't know if there was another attack coming their way," Sheriff Alex Villanueva said.

Audio captures a frantic call for help from one of the deputies shortly after the shooting.

"I've been shot. Send help," one of the deputies is heard saying in the radio call.

Both deputies incurred multiple gunshot wounds and are recovering from surgery in stable condition at St. Francis Medical Center in Lynwood.
