Owen Richards, 16, suffered a grazed shoulder after being hit by the bullet that mortally struck his uncle Adrian Evans in the side of his head.
And nearby, his 19-year-old brother Joel and 78-year-old grandfather Patrick Evans lay dead in the sand – after they were slain by the gunman.
But after fleeing the horrific scene in the resort of El Kantaoui, Owen rushed to the aid of a woman who had been wounded outside his hostel.
He was later found by a medic who reported that the teenager was ‘shaking and crying’, and said ‘I have to call my mum’.
To some people loving others just comes naturally.
