Gloria Kay Fraser Giffords


TUCSON, Ariz. - For about 20 minutes, Rep. Gabrielle Giffords' husband broke down in a plane's bathroom after believing incorrect media reports that his wife had been fatally shot at a political event outside a supermarket. Mark Kelly said he had rushed aboard a friend's plane to fly to Arizona after hearing of the shooting in Tucson, and that he saw the television report while enroute. "I just, you know, walked into the bathroom and you know, broke down," Kelly told ABC's Diane Sawyer in an interview that aired Tuesday. "To hear that she died is just - it's devastating for me." The astronaunt said he learned that she was alive when he called Giffords' mother, who was outside the operating room at the hospital where the congresswoman was being treated. He has said that he called an ABC affiliate in Houston to correct reports of his wife's death. - AMANDA LEE MYERS
