Orlando Hospitals Won't Charge Pulse Shooting Victims


On June 12, the worst mass shooting in US history occurred at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando -- 49 people were killed and dozens wounded.

It was a devastating and horrifying tragedy that broke the country's heart.

But the Orlando community has displayed an incredible level of solidarity and perseverance and emerged as a massive source of inspiration since that terrible day.

On Wednesday, the two hospitals that treated survivors of the massacre -- Orlando Regional Hospital and Florida Hospital -- announced they would not be charging them for their medical bills, NBC News reports.

In a statement, Orlando Health, a nonprofit network of medical facilities, including Orlando Regional Hospital, said,

This is a heartwarming and humane gesture for a group of individuals who've already suffered enough.

It's nice to hear some actual good news for a change.

Love wins. Love always wins.
