Las Vegas Shooting Hero Wins $120,000 on 'Deal or No Deal' With Woman He Saved by His Side
Justin Uhart burst into tears when he won $120,000 on "Deal or No Deal" Wednesday night.
A Las Vegas shooting hero burst into tears when he won $120,000 on "Deal or No Deal" Wednesday night.
Justin Uhart was working as bartender the evening of the Oct. 1, 2017, massacre, which killed 58 people and injured hundreds more. That night, he saved the life of Jan Lambourne, a Canadian woman who was visiting Vegas for the Route 91 Harvest music festival.
Uhart ran into the crowd as bullets rained down from above and spotted Lambourne, who was bleeding from a gunshot wound. He plugged the hole and carried her to safety with a police officer.
"I started talking to Jan and keeping pressure on the wound and trying to calm her down," he told CNBC, which airs "Deal or No Deal." "We started talking about her cats ... just trying to get the mind off of the wound."
Lambourne surprised an emotional Uhart on the show Wednesday.
"I was just caught up in the moment," he said. "I can't believe I cried on TV. I never cry at all, so crying on TV in front of millions of people is just like, 'Ah!' It's one of those things."
Lambourne was thrilled he won. She told Inside Edition Thursday he "deserves the world."
Uhart said he will buy a house with the money.
