Mom Shielded Her Daughter as Gunman Fired Into Vegas Crowd

Mom Calls Themselves “Lucky”

They both found refuge in the nearby Tropicana hotel, and Krygier knows they were lucky they weren’t harmed. She told CNN she doesn’t think her daughter saw any injured victims “or blood.”

She also wrote:

“I also want to thank the countless police officers and healthcare professionals who rushed in to secure our safety and health, even on their days off. Thank you to the staff at the Trop for handling everything extremely well and calmly. Thank you Chrystal for helping me get my baby out of there safely. I don’t know what I would have done without you. Thank you Traci for being there with us and also helping with B. Thank you to the man literally pushing me forward with B in my arms when I couldn’t run any farther. Thank you to the man who yelled at us to get down when I was still trying to make sense of what was going on. Thank you to every single person who texted, called, messaged with words of love and support for B and I.”

“My heart is with those who weren’t nearly as lucky as we were.”
