Tucsonans Misty Lacy and Jane Power attended the Route 91 Harvest Festival in Las Vegas over the weekend and recall bullets flying around them.

"One section over one seat right behind my husband had moved into a different seat and the guy behind him actually got shot in the head and so he had to pull his wife off of him she was hysterical and he basically threw her to me and were down on the ground," said Lacy.

As gunfire began they started running and got separated. 

"We went back to where there was a bunch of injured people and then we kind of started assessing who was already gone," said Lacy. "We were taking apart fencing and making makeshift gurneys and emptying beer and water carts so we could transport people out to the street."

Lacy and her husband were putting injured people into Ubers and cars to get them to the hospital, while Power helped console people in panic hiding behind a cement wall for safety. 

"You know I think we are doing as well as can be expected," Lacy said. "Hearing some noises like... I was getting gas today and heard a jackhammer and it kind of threw me for a little bit."

"You just are heartbroken for all those people and those families and the lives that are changed that's hard and you think how... what did we not do, how could we have helped," said Power.

They both say through this they have started to connect with many people they met that night.

Also, they both say this is not going to stop them from going to future music concerts and they will not stop living their lives.
