AMAZING: Hero Dad Saves 30 People During Las Vegas Massacre Before Being Shot In The Neck

Last Sunday night was one of the bloodiest nights in U.S. history after the horrible Las Vegas massacre with 59 confirmed dead and more than 500 injured. During all that evil, the American people present at the concert, from country music fans to on and off duty first responders, showed enormous heroism and selflessness.

30-year-old Jonathan Smith was one of those Americans. This brave young father has been credited with saving 30 people from getting shot at the concert before he was struck by a bullet the remains lodged in his neck.

Smith's brother, Luis Rust, was among the first in the group to realize that the loud bangs they were hearing were not fireworks, but gunshots.

'Rust realized what was really going on and told the entire extended family (all nine of them) to hold hands and run. By then, it was a stampede' Washington Post reported.

Smith quickly realized that his family got separated in the crowd, including his young nieces, range from 17-22 years in age.

'He says he turned back toward the stage to look for them, he saw people hunched behind a sheriff patrol car at the northwest edge of the concert lawn. Others were so frightened they didn’t know what to do. He kept shouting, 'Active shooter, active shooter, let’s go! We have to run'

'He grabbed people and told them to follow him toward a handicapped parking area in the direction of the airport, away from Las Vegas Boulevard. It was a large field with several rows of vehicles. Smith and the others crouched down behind one of the last rows of cars.' the Post noted.

'I got a few people out of there' said the 30-year-old hero. 'You could hear the shots. It sounded like it was coming from all over Las Vegas Boulevard.' he added.

But while Smith was shielding the young girls from the gunfire, he was struck in the neck by a bullet.

'I couldn’t feel anything in my neck. There was a warm sensation in my arm' said Smith for the Post.

The bullet is still lodged in his neck as doctors are concern that removing it at this time will cause more harm. He also suffered a fractured collarbone, a cracked rib and a bruised lung.

'I might have to live with this bullet for the rest of my life' said Smith.

This American hero, was also saved by another heroic man, an off-duty San Diego police officer. He tried stop Smith's bleeding and flagged a car to take him to the hospital.

'The officer came over and tried to stop the bleeding and then flagged down passing cars to try to get Smith a ride. Many just drove by, but a pickup truck stopped and Smith was put in the back of it along with several other wounded victims. By then, he was struggling to breathe.'

'I really didn't want to die' said Smith.

Jonathan Smith does not consider himself a hero, but he will always be our hero. 'I don’t see myself that way, I would want someone to do the same for me. No one deserves to lose a life coming to a country festival.' he said.

This is the guy that should get media coverage! Not that evil murdering terrorist, not the kneelers or the celebrities. So please SHARE his heroism on social media, because he sure deserves it!
