Lake Forest native hurt in LAX shooting will need surgery
A Lake Forest native who was injured in friday’s shooting at Los Angeles International Airport says he will need surgery and extensive therapy.
Brian Ludmer, 29, was shot once in the right calf. The bullet fractured his leg.
Ludmer says he is still hospitalized and will have at least one more surgery.
Ludmer is a teacher in southern California, but grew up in Lake Forest.
He told coworkers that he thought he wasn’t going to survive the shooting, after he hid in a closet and put a tourniquet on his leg.
