As he was running towards the soldiers he got shot in the leg, but he pretended to be OK and kept running towards the wounded. As he was running while being shot he got hit with a hand grenade and ripped his face. But continued to run. As he reached the wounded he gave them Morphine and dragged them to the helicopter, but got shot again in his right thigh (2nd gunshot wound). Now he attended the second rescue group but while running to save more soldier's a bullet struck his stomach and a grenade shattered his back. After rescuing all those people and putting them on the helicopter, the pilot was shot dead and and the helicopter crashed, but Roy didn't stop and give up there.
