Orlando Survivor Shares Terrifying Story Of Survival [VIDEO]

Patience Carter of Philadelphia, 20, spoke with the media Tuesday about what transpired during the Pulse nightclub massacre early Sunday morning in Orlando. Carter was with two friends, one did not survive the shooting, when the gunman Omar Mateen entered the bathroom and even held a conversation with a number of the victims.

They were a cross-section of Americans living it up at an Orlando nightclub — professionals who plied their trades in the city's gleaming towers, 20-somethings who worked in nearby amusement parks. They were tourists passing through town and regulars greeting old friends.

Carter told reporters that while in the bathroom she could overhear the gunman speaking to 911 pledging his allegiance to ISIS. She also said the Mateen “wasn’t going to stop killing people until he was killed, until he felt like his message got out there.”
