Woods hid behind a car and seven Dayton police officers came running. Six of those officers fired shots killing Betts.
“I didn’t know what to do,” said Woods. “Something just told me to stay calm and just duck behind that car.”
“A second later I look up and Dayton police were returning fire with the shooter,” he said. “He was right above me. I looked up he was right there. He saved my life.”
Woods drove himself to Miami Valley Hospital for treatment and has since been released.
Wednesday afternoon Woods was back at the hospital, this time to meet with President Donald Trump. Trump visited first responders, hospital workers and victims during his visit to Dayton.
Woods says his heart goes out to all of the people families who lost a loved one.
He realizes just how lucky he was.
“That could have been me,” Woods said. “I’ve been talking with God a lot. I feel like he’s got a plan for me.”
