While in the hospital in Las Vegas, Sheldon was reunited with Jimmy Grovom,  a paramedic from Orange County, Calif. who stayed with Sheldon and got him to the hospital. He was also visited by Erik Frazier,the man who used his truck to ferry 14 victims including Mack and Grovom to the nearest hospitals.
