Although Scotty Pettersen couldn’t bring himself to search for the people he helped for fear they didn’t survive, his parents are desperate to find “a bright spot.”
When a country music concert turned into a killing field in Las Vegas, Scotty Pettersen of Seattle helped so many gunshot victims, he lost count.
As the bullets hit hundreds of people, the 27-year-old Pettersen ran his girlfriend and a nearby family to the safety of an ambulance.
The paramedics were out helping others but inside the ambulance were four gunshot victims. Pettersen’s EMT and firefighter training kicked in.
