A married couple from the state of California who survived the deadliest mass shooting in U.S. history on Oct. 1 in Las Vegas died in a car crash just half a mile away from their home.
According to the Las Vegas Review-Journal, Dennis and Lorraine Carver died after their car crashed into a metal gate outside their neighborhood in Riverside County, California. The accident happened last week.
The couple was at the Route 91 Harvest Music Festival when Stephen Paddock sprayed thousands of rounds onto 22,000 people, killing 58 and wounding nearly 500. Dennis Carver jumped on top of his wife to shield her from bullets. The couple managed to run away uninjured.
Brooke Carver, the couple’s 20-year-old daughter, said her parents had grown deeper in love in the two weeks after the shooting.
“After the shooting, they heard from all of the people they cared about most. They were so happy,” she said in an interview. “The last two weeks of their lives were really just spent living in the moment.”
