How A "Drag Race" Queen Saved The Life of A Gunshot Victim

It all went down after a "RuPaul's Drag Race" Season 9 viewing party.

RuPaul's Drag Race Season 8 contestant Dax ExclamationPoint may be known for turning out sickening superhero cosplay, but last Friday night the Atlanta queen did something truly heroic: he saved a gunshot victim's life.

After wrapping up a Season 9 viewing party at Mary's in east Atlanta, Dax and bar patrons heard a gunshot. Moments later, the victim staggered to the backdoor of the bar and that's when the seasoned queen sprung into action.

The man arrived with a gunshot wound through the leg, so Dax tore off the Violet Chachki T-shirt he was wearing and used it to create a tourniquet to stop the bleeding.

"Luckily the bullet went right through and no major arteries were hit... it was jarring but everyone is alright now," Dax wrote on Twitter, adding that police arrived quickly and took care of the man.

Fans were understandably quite impressed and shared messages of admiration for the Drag Race alum.

Thanks for saving the day, Dax!
