Intern Daniel Hernandez insists he's no hero

Although he denies it, Daniel Hernandez is being called an American hero. His quick thinking and poise in the midst of Saturday's shooting outside a Tucson Safeway supermarket likely helped save his boss Representative Gabrielle Giffords' life.

In his speech at the University of Arizona Wednesday night, President Obama lauded Hernandez for his heroism but the twenty-year-old intern insists he's no hero and says, "I have to humbly reject the title of hero even though the president did call me that." American Morning's T.J. Holmes talks to Hernandez about his first-hand encounter with the President and to Rep. Giffords' Communications Director C.J. Karamargin about his star intern.
