Las Vegas Shooting Survivors Reunite, Nearly 1 Year After Deadly Shooting

Shaun Topper, a total stranger, scooped up Karen Smerber and carried her for a half-mile after a bullet tore through her stomach.

Nearly one year after the Las Vegas massacre, survivors remain haunted by the physical and psychological trauma of that horrific night. 

Inside Edition brought together 80 of those who lived through the night after gunman Stephen Paddock opened fire on a crowd at the Route 91 Harvest festival, killing 58 people and injuring hundreds more. Paddock was later found dead in his suite on the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino.

Among the survivors reunited by Inside Edition were Shaun Topper and Karen Smerber. Topper, a total stranger to Smerber, scooped her up and carried her for a half-mile after a bullet tore through her stomach.

"There was no way I was going to make it out of there [without his help]," Smerber said. 

The two embraced as they saw each other.

Tiffany Huizar was visited by President Trump in the hospital after the shooting. She was struck three times. 

"It was life-changing," she said. "I was barely coming into being an adult."
