Various of Las Vegas shooting survivors getting tattoos2. SOUNDBITE (English) Dean McAuley, Las Vegas Shooting Survivor:++PARTIALLY COVERED++"Healing Ink is putting on a really cool event here for those of us who were part of Route 91. And it's, they've been able to figure out that there's a lot of healing and tattooing. The quick and dirty about story is I was probably 15 to 20 feet off of Jason's right side, so stage right. Shooting started, my background and training is fire department and I threw my two guys I was with putting down on the ground as soon as we heard it. Waited for a break in the shooting, then ran against the crowd because that's my training. Built a barrier out of garbage cans up near the sage. And then started pulling people in the best that we could. As soon as police cut a hole in the fence, I sent my friends with them. I went to the EMS tent, grabbed some gloves. I went to work. I went out on the field, worked a few patients, two girls who didn't make it. And then I went out Sunrise Hospital and sort of triaging patients, calling patients, people out of cars and working on. And probably had my hands on, I don't know, I couldn't tell you how many people, and eventually I made my way back to the field and Las Vegas fire was there and they saw my shirt. I had a Seattle fire department shirt on, but it's why they said nobody's left alive out there. Everyone's gone."3. Various of Las Vegas shooting survivors getting tattoosSTORYLINE:Survivors and community members marked the third anniversary of the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history, as Las Vegas remembered the excruciating night when 58 people were killed at an outdoor country music festival in 2017.Remembrances around Las Vegas ranged from a lawmaker setting out on a 58-kilometer (36-mile) fundraising run to blood drives to an invitation for survivors of the shooting to get tattoos.The tattoo event was held by an organization called Healing Ink."They've been able to figure out that there's a lot of healing and tattooing," said survivor Dean McAuley. McAuley, a trained firefighter, recalled the shooting and his efforts to save those who were injured. "I went to the EMS tent, grabbed some gloves. I went to work," he recalled. "I went out on the field, worked a few patients, two girls who didn't make it." Authorities said more than 850 people were injured in the attack by a lone shooter firing from upper-floor windows of the Mandalay Bay resort into an outdoor crowd of 22,000 attending the Route 91 Harvest Festival. Police later said 413 of the injured suffered bullet or shrapnel wounds, others were injured fleeing the concert venue.Clark County Sheriff Joe Lombardo announced Thursday he was raising the department's death toll from the shooting to 60. He drew local criticism in recent weeks for refusing to increase the number despite coroners' rulings that two women died during the past year of wounds received three years ago.===========================================================Clients are reminded: (i) to check the terms of their licence agreements for use of content outside news programming and that further advice and assistance can be obtained from the AP Archive on: Tel +44 (0) 20 7482 7482 Email: info@aparchive.com(ii) they should check with the applicable collecting society in their Territory regarding the clearance of any sound recording or performance included within the AP Television News service (iii) they have editorial responsibility for the use of all and any content included within the AP Television News service and for libel, privacy, compliance and third party rights applicable to their Territory.
