“Just truly incredible, (a) stranger, jumping over me to protect me.”
The man was among the many who attended to others during and after a massacre in which a gunman fired from the 32nd floor of a Vegas hotel into crowds below at the Route 91 Harvest Music Festival, killing 59 people and injuring another 527
Before the shooting began, McAslin and Goddard were standing by the stage where country music singer Jason Aldean was performing. Then they began to hear gunfire.
