An escape into a freezer saved dozens of lives during the Las Vegas massacre and led one couple to find love. Singer Bryan Hopkins of the country group Elvis Monroe is the hero who guided concertgoers into a giant ice cooler to hide while gunfire erupted. Nicole Ruffino was sitting by his side. At that moment, the two barely knew each other, but just seconds earlier, Hopkins had gone out of his way to save her life. “I went back and I grabbed her hand,” he told Inside Edition.
October 1 marked one year since the horrific mass shooting that shocked the country music community, and the entire world. My thoughts and prayers are with the loved ones of those who passed, and all the survivors struggling to recover.
