A Murrells Inlet man who helped save countless victims of the Oct. 1 Las Vegas shooting has been invited to tour the White House and meet the President.

Dr. Ben Davis, a trauma surgeon with Sunrise Hospital in Las Vegas who lives in Murrells Inlet community with his wife and two children, worked with a team of trauma surgeons to operate on over 214 patients and triage countless others after the shooting, a news release said.

Davis' two children, Madeleine and Jack, both attend Lowcountry Preparatory School and Madeleine’s fifth grade class created 40 cards to be hand-delivered to those patients when the family visited Las Vegas,

Last week Maureen Davis and the two children flew to Las Vegas to visit him and the shooting victims still in the Sunrise Hospital ICU wing fighting for their lives, according to a news release from Lowcountry Preparatory School.
