Giffords sees brother-in-law for first time since shooting

(CNN) - Wounded U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords saw her brother-in-law, NASA commander Scott Kelly, for the first time since she was shot in January, her spokesman told CNN Sunday.

Kelly returned to Earth from the International Space Station last week and went to Houston, Texas, the home of the Johnson Space Center, early Thursday morning. His reunion with Giffords took place at TIRR Memorial Hermann rehabilitation hospital in Houston on Friday, C.J. Karamargin said.
