A 52-year-old father, Adeeb Sami, took a bullet to save his sons at al Noor mosque. He dived over his sons Abdullah, 29, and Ali, 23, as the gunman burst into the mosque. “My dad is a real hero,” Adeeb’s daughter, Heba, said. “He got shot in the back near his spine in an attempt to shield my brothers, but he didn’t let anything happen to them.” Adeeb was rushed to hospital where he underwent surgery to remove the bullet.
