KOLD-TV is webcasting its coverage of the scene in Tucson, where an ambulance is taking Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D-AZ) to the local Air Force base, from where she'll be flown to a rehabilitation center in Houston.

There's a considerable crowd at University Medical Center in Tucson and along the roads.

Giffords was critically injured in a Jan. 8 shooting rampage at an event she was holding at a Tucson strip mall. Six people were killed. Thirteen others, including Giffords, were injured. Copyright 2011 National Public Radio. To see more, visit http://www.npr.org/.
