Vegas survivor shares emotional post

A survivor of the Las Vegas shootings wrote an emotional post to her off-duty police officer husband, the first responders in Las Vegas, and the strangers who helped keep her alive.

Michelle was at the Route 91 Harvest Festival with her husband and friends Sunday evening, when a shooter opened fire on the crowd.

She shared a photo to her Instagram with the caption:
This photo was taken tonight moments  before the worst mass shooting in  American history took place.  I would  like to take this opportunity to  thank God for each of these people's  lives. Thank you for keeping us  protected and unbelievably unharmed.  Thank you for the brave men and  women who stayed behind to help when  everyone was running terrified for  their lives. Thank you to the man who  pulled me over the fence when my  boot was stuck.  Thank you to the  girls who grabbed me and ran with me  when they saw I'd been separated  from my husband and friends. Thank  you to the friends that came and got  me from my place of refuge even  when the shooter was still active. Thank  you for the man who was  willing to pile us in his car and drive us to  safety. Thank you for all  the brave officers who responded to the scene  after the terror took  place, and for the paramedics who saved lives  tonight. Thank you for  the bravery and tactical skill of the Las Vegas  Police who found the  shooter quickly and took him down.  Thank you for  the nurses and  doctors currently still working on the victims. Above all  thank you for  my brave husband who used his own body to shield me and  others from  bullets as those next to us were shot. When we were  separated and he  realized he could no longer protect me he stayed behind  to hold  pressure on gunshot wounds and carry people to trucks for  departure to  hospitals. He and all the other off duty officers, military  personal,  and anyone else in the venue and out who helped save a life  tonight are  the true heroes. I already do and will continue to thank God  he  brought this man into my life. We made it. We are safe.  We will  walk  away from this tragedy and live to die another day.  It pains me so   much to see so many not as fortunate as us. If you get the chance today   I urge you to thank an officer. I know I will hold mine a lot closer   today and forever 💙 #thinbluefamily #ilovemyofficer #prayforlasvegas  #prayfortheworld #rt91harvest
