TSD: Delaware’s best take on events, community and local life

A 35-year-old Greenville businessman was shot in the leg in the deadly Istanbul nightclub attack on New Year’s Eve that Isis is now claiming to have committed.

Delawarean Jacob Raak was the only American injured in the slaughter, according to the US State Department, which has taken 39 lives.

Raak was shot in the leg, and the Daily Mail is reporting that a pocketed cell phone may have prevented more serious injury.

Raak told NBC News that he was “very fortunate” to have survived.

“Somebody said there were shots fired, and I initially did not believe it, until I saw the gunman and he started shooting up the whole place. He was walking on a bench above my head … when he shot me I didn’t move,” said Raak. “I just let him shoot me.”

“I was shot in the hip and the bullet traveled to my knee and was lodged in my knee. I was probably the luckiest person in the whole thing. I do find myself very fortunate, I was with dying people, seven of us were shot.”
