SIOUX FALLS (AP) - A South Dakota man is recovering after being shot in the leg during the attack by a gunman in Las Vegas that killed at least 59 people and injured hundreds of others.

The Associated Press reports that Brian Wills returned to Sioux Falls on Monday still wearing jeans bloody from his wounds. Wills says he is happy to be home and feels "extremely fortunate."

Wills says he was hit as he and others tried to leave the area after the gunfire started. He was shot twice in the leg and suffered a broken fibula.

He says the experience is a reminder of "why you hug your family every day."
