BATON ROUGE, (WAFB) - The 23-year-old Baton Rouge man hailed as hero after saving a pregnant woman from an armed robbery is expected to make a full recovery.
Charlie Cangelosi is the son of David Cangelosi, the owner of one of the city's best-known construction firms named Cangelosi and Ward.
David and Carolyn Cangelosi said the past two days have been an absolute nightmare. They have not left their son's side and they remain optimistic.
"We're so proud of him," said Carolyn Cangelosi. "So happy he's alive and everything is going to be fine and we're just so proud that he's our son."
She said it's hard to think back to early Sunday morning just after midnight. That's when her son he was shot in the chest after helping save a pregnant 20-year-old woman during an armed robbery. It happened on Earl Gros, just outside Stadium Square Apartments near Tigerland.
"Not surprised. I would be surprised if he had not helped her. If he had walked away and stayed healthy, he would never have been happy for the rest his life. This is what he was supposed to do and he did it," she explained.
The Cangelosis stated Charlie's room has been flooded with visitors, all hoping to catch a glimpse of a person being hailed as a hero.
"As far as responding to being a hero or a 'Good Samaritan,' he just shakes his head, no. I think he's feeling that's not what this was all about," his mother added.
For almost two days now, his parents say he's in a medically-induced coma, but did wake up on his own on Sunday, which is a good sign. He had another surgery Monday and faces yet another surgery Thursday.
"We're in the middle of the woods. We're not out of the woods, so we still have a long ways to go, but he's doing great," she said.
Carolyn and David Cangelosi said they are praying for Charlie's shooter and have found it in their heart to forgive him and give them help.
