Survivors Of The Pulse Nightclub Shooting Set To Tell Their Stories In MTV Documentary We Are Orlando: True Life
Four brave men and women will be telling their story in the MTV documentary, We Are Orlando: True Life this evening...
It was the worst mass shooting that the United States had ever seen.
And two months after the shooting at Pulse nightclub in Florida, four brave men and women will be telling their story in the MTV documentary, True Life: We Are Orlando, this evening.
The individuals we're set to see on the show tonight are Tony Marrero, Patience Carter, Tiara Parker and Joshua McGill - who saved a victim's life in the attack.
Tony was shot four times during the horrific event, including once in the back, and lost his best friend in the shooting.
Patience and Tiara were in town visiting from Philadelphia along with a friend, who was killed by the attacker. During the rampage, the trio hid in a bathroom but were eventually discovered by the shooter. Patience and Tiara were saved by the SWAT team - but their friend Akyra heartbreakingly didn't survive.
During the chaos, Joshua fled over a back wall and hid behind a car, where he heard a stranger crying out for help. The injured man was Rodney Sumter, who had been shot multiple times. Joshua made a tourniquet out of his shirt to stop the bleeding - saving the father of two's life in the process.
On June 12th 2016, a gunman opened fire in the LGBTQ nightclub Pulse, in Orlando, Florida. The homophobic attack left at least 49 dead, with dozens more injured, before the gunman was shot dead by police.
