(FOX 8/WVUE) Holly and Tracy Pitre decided to go to Las Vegas for their anniversary. Being country music fans, the Route 91 Harvest Festival was on their itinerary. But the Houma couple had no idea they would soon find themselves in the middle of the worst mass shooting in U.S. history.
"I heard the pop, pop, the first two or three pops," said Holly Pitre.
She thought maybe it was fireworks that were part of a performance on the strip.
"Then all of a sudden, it was just something from a movie. You heard the automatic, the ammunition, pop, pop, pop. I knew at that instant we were in trouble," she said.
She and her husband took off running as fast as they could.
"It was horrific. The biggest thing that sticks in my mind is, no matter how fast or how far you ran, the way everything echoed down that strip, it just seemed like he was following," Tracy Pitre said.
