    Raphael Taylor, a Dallas man who witnessed Thursday night's deadly ambush on law enforcement, said he has a Dallas Area Rapid Transit officer to thank for saving his life.

    "The officer, the lady officer seen the gunfire, tried to run over and help us and ended up being shot," Taylor said.

    The officer Misty McBride, 32, was discharged from Dallas’ Baylor Medical Center Saturday night.

    McBride suffered two gunshot wounds, one to the abdomen and another to the arm.

    Taylor returned to the scene of the shooting Sunday, and marveled at McBride's effort.

    "She saved my life,” Taylor said. “I want to tell her, 'Thank you. And I hope that you get better. I hope you’re well. And I hope that God [is] with you.'"
