Tucson couple survives and helps victims in Las Vegas mass shooting

Posted: Updated:

Mark and Misty Lacy are Tucson residents, who survived and helped victims in America’s deadliest mass shooting in the country’s history.

The married couple was enjoying country singer, Jason Aldean, along with 22,000 other concert-goers when they heard bullets ring out.

Mark said he first noticed the couple sitting next to him needed help. “They were down on the ground and they weren't moving,” he said. “The wife was screaming hysterically.”

Mark, along with others, assisted the man to an area where he could receive medical attention.

“She wanted me to leave,” said Mark, referring to his wife Misty. “I said I can't leave. As long as I can help, I'm going to help.”

Misty said she made the decision to stay with her husband and help.

"People wouldn't leave. We were having to physically pull them up and get them to go the direction that we needed them to go," said Misty.

For two hours, the couple checked pulses, assisted with evacuating, and helped move victims. They said they used pieces of a fence to help drag the wounded to the street. Once there, they said other good Samaritans used their personal vehicles to transport the wounded to hospitals.

"We have to keep going to these events,” said Misty. “We need to keep doing the things we love and not let the bad guys win."
