A gunman who opened fire on concert-goers attending the Route 91 Harvest country music festival, on the Las Vegas Strip killed 58 people and left nearly 500 wounded in what officials have called the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history.
TELL DR. PHIL YOUR STORY: Kids in Crisis?
In an episode airing this Friday, Dr. Phil speaks with survivors of the shooting, including Clint, a photojournalist who says he was there covering the festival for a music magazine.
“It sounded like firecrackers going off,” says Clint, from his hospital bed, where he’s recovering from injuries sustained in the shooting. “It stopped and then it started again. And the second time it started, I’m like, ‘That’s gunfire.’”
After getting shot in the back of the leg, Clint says he made his way to a sheltered area near the VIP section of the venue, where two strangers pulled him into the back of a pickup truck. “Thank God they put a tourniquet on me – they basically saved my life.”
Clint says he doesn’t understand how someone could just go out and shoot innocent people for “no reason at all,” but states he’s grateful for everyone who stepped up to help during the tragedy.
