People who came to the aid of Arizona shooting victims earlier this month and the family of a girl killed in the incident are expected to appear at President Barack Obama's State of the Union Address on Tuesday night in Washington.

White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs confirmed reports on Monday that Daniel Hernandez, an intern to Rep. Gabrielle Giffords would attend the President's annual address to Congress. Hernandez went to help his boss by applying pressure to her head shot wound amid the tumult of the shooting on January 8.

The family of Christina Taylor, a nine year-old girl killed in the shooting, is also set to attend, Gibbs said.

Dr. Peter Rhee, the head of Trauma at University Medical Center in Arizona was also scheduled to attend. Rhee's team of medical professionals have provided care for several victims of the shooting in the days and weeks since the incident.
