WHO WE LOST 

INSIDE PULSE NIGHTCLUB 

  • Angel Colon, a survivor of the Pulse nightclub mass shooting, listens during a press conference with Orlando Health trauma staff at Orlando Regional Medical Center June 14, 2016 in Orlando, Florida.

    What they witnessed

    At least a dozen of them crawled into a bathroom, cramming into a single stall. They cried and whispered prayers. Gunfire replaced music. Glass shattered. The acrid smell of gunpowder filled the air.
    A figure loomed outside the stall door. A man collapsed in a pool of his own blood. His killer laughed.
    For three harrowing hours, as the gunman took hostages, people crouched in a dressing room or in air conditioning vents. One woman survived by covering herself with bodies.
