Per WGN TV, A photo of Jonathon Smith has gone viral after he saved 30 people in the Las Vegas shooting and took a bullet in his neck.
The Washington Post reports that Jonathon Smith travelled to Las Vegas with his brother to attend the Las Vegas music festival. They were seated close to the stage with nine members of their extended family.
When the bullets rang out, Smith originally thought they were fireworks. Once country star Jason Aldean ran off stage, he realized something was wrong. Smith told his family to run then rushed through the crowd shouting, “Active shooter, active shooter, let’s go! We have to run.”
“I got a few people out of there,” Smith told The Post. “You could hear the shots. It sounded like it was coming from all over Las Vegas Boulevard.”
Witnesses estimated that Smith saved 30 lives before being shot in the neck. An off-duty police officer gave Smith medical attention until he flagged down a truck that drove Smith to the hospital.
