Shaq, Tebow, Kaka and others visit Orlando Pulse victims in hospital


Victims recovering from last week’s attack at Pulse nightclub in Orlando got a nice surprise this week. 

Shaquille O’Neal, Johnny Damon and Kaka all visited the Orlando Regional Medical Center together on Monday, June 20, with former Florida Gator Tim Tebow stopping by the facility on Tuesday. 

And, of course, Florida Gov. Rick Scott and his wife also popped in. 

My high school quarterback left the Bahamas to come and see me. Tebow has always been an awesome person.
