Jonathan Smith, the Las Vegas hero who helped save 30 lives during the shooting, broke down into tears while talking about the Las Vegas massacre.
Smith was attending the Route 91 Harvest country music festival in Las Vegas when disaster struck. During the incredibly tough situation Smith helped around 30 people escape the shooting. By all accounts he put his life on the line to help those around him to safety.
During his selfless actions Smith was short in the arm and neck. A bullet remains in his neck as removal of the bullet could cause permanent damage.
Per Daily Wire:
“You’re not going to die. I got you,” said McGrath to Smith while placing pressure on Smith’s neck wound; Smith was emotionally moved in recalling the assistance McGrath gave him on Sunday night.
McGrath noted Smith’s modesty, describing Smith’s conduct as “extraordinary.”
“I think he’s being a little too modest,” said McGrath of Smith. “I think what he did was extraordinary. I’m somebody who trains for things like this… but I think somebody like him, is extraordinary. He showed tremendous bravery, and he’s somebody who inspires me.”
McGrath continued: “I know he might not want to give himself all the credit, but he definitely did a wonderful job, and I was happy to be there to help him toward the end and get him out of there when he was hit.”
“I owe that man my life,” said Smith. “From the moment I got hit, he was the first one to actually help me stop the bleeding. He never left my side, at all… I owe him my life.”
