November 5, 2013 (LOS ANGELES) -- A Lake Forest man who was wounded in the shooting at Los Angeles international Airport says he had to crawl to safety.
Teacher Brian Ludmer, 29, was on his way to Chicago for a wedding. He was in a security line when the shooting started.
A bullet hit his calf and shattered a bone. He crawled away and hid in a small storeroom. Ludmer was rescued by police.
"The feeling of relief after hearing the voices and peeking out and seeing that it was in fact police was, I can't even describe. And they pulled me out," said Ludmer.
The officers put him in a wheelchair and raced him out of the airport.
Doctors say he'll recover.
