    Make time and take first aid training! The more people that have the training the better we can all be in situations like this

    People that can do something like that for a complete stranger are amazing. His instinct wasn’t to run and protect himself, it was to help others. It blows my mind. But then there are those who really think that human life is disposable and may be cut short whenever they decide. It’s so sad. However, I firmly believe that this hero represents more of the world than we are lead to think.

    I was shot at the event in the foot while diving for cover with my girlfriend. I was hit in the foot. I didn’t even realize I was shot until I felt the discomfort. I grabbed her hand and we crawled and then made a sprint for a concrete walls where I could start treating my foot. I had to push through the pain to get us there. Once we had to move again, I got up and couldn’t run anymore. My leg wouldn’t work, so my girlfriend had all my weight on her shoulders. Another man came and scooped me up onto his shoulders And carried me as far as he could to safety. I’ll never forget him and I’ll always be grateful to my girlfriend for staying strong even though I’ll never forget the look of terror in her face.
    Edit: idk even know the guy’s name that carried me and stayed with me til I was transported and that really bugs me.

    So what was the ideal place to tie the belt around his leg? Just curious

    It’s so sad that often it often takes a tragedy for us to see the good in people. They are heroes!!

    If it isn’t uncomfortable, it isn’t tight enough.

    I watch stuff like this and I think how would I react, because I go to things like this. I haven’t been to an outdoor concert in a really long time. Or even a country one. But If I lived close enough to Las Vegas I would’ve gone.

    I don’t want to be the person that just runs past people that need help. I don’t wanna be the person that tramples someone out of fear for my life. If I get caught up in a something like this and I react like that, the guilt and shame will kill me.

    But you can’t be someone that helps wrong. I have to take first aid training as people are suggesting.

    She is right, it’s good to hear stories like this.

    My friend and I were walking to the store during the tropical storm part of Harvey and people were stopping and asking if we were alright and if we needed any help. We didn’t, but it was great to be asked.

    It does remind me that there was ONE person shooting, but far more people helping. And it is a good reminder.

    When I grew up as a kid in elementary school, we had fire drills, earthquake drills (even though St. Louis hadn’t had a major earth quake in over 100 years), and tornado drills.

    Never had any of those drills during my college years. The one thing we learned on our first day of class, this was a first for me was “Active shooter drills”. Well it wasn’t a drill but we were taught on what to do if an active shooter was in the building.

    he touched on the other person applying the tourniquet incorrectly. FYI if you ever have to apply a tourniquet the easiest and most effective way to do it is tighten whatever youre using BETWEEN 2-4 INCHES ABOVE THE WOUND, make sure its tight enough to stop the bleeding if you can remember the time that you applied it, try to pass the time on to the next person caring for the victim, you can do this bywriting it on them using their blood or a marker. I hope this can help someone.

    This will probably go unnoticed but isn’t it a bit inconsiderate to ask them to go back close to the place where they almost got killed?

    Glad people are coming together, but I can’t help but feel like videos like this are something not dissimilar to War Profiteering only for tragedies.

    This is what the world is all about. Helping whoever needs help. Too many of us fall victim to being so self absorbed that we wouldn’t even think to stop and help another person while trying to save our own life. At the end of the day we are all one, no matter how much everyone in this world works to lengthen that divide between us. We are all human, we all need love, we all need compassion and its shitty that it takes tragedies like this to realize it.

    I keep getting emotional about all the people helping. There are videos of people pushing other people in wheelchairs, and not running off to leave them to fend for themselves. It just restores my faith in people that in their worst moments they still considered other people – it wasn’t just a “everyone for themselves, life or death”. Instead they put people above themselves and their safety. True heros and proof that individualism isn’t as rampant as it sometimes feels.
