Dennis and Lorraine Carver were at the Route 91 Harvest music festival on October 1 in Las Vegas when noises they thought were fireworks began distracting from the music.
Suddenly, Dennis slammed his body over Lorraine’s to protect her. He’d realised the sounds weren’t fireworks at all. They were gun shots.
The pair held hands and ran for their lives as bullets rained down upon the crowd.
Both got out safely, lucky to be alive following the deadliest mass shooting in modern US history. An attack that left 58 people dead, and hundreds injured.
In a horrible twist of fate, however, just two weeks after they returned from Vegas to their home in California the couple smashed their car into the gates of their residential community and were engulfed in flames. It was October 16, and both were killed.
