Las Vegas shooting victim SAVED BY IPHONE – bullet hit mobile but lucky owner survived

A taxi driver took a photo of the iPhone after ferrying its owner to safety. 

The woman, who has not been named, is said to have told the driver gunfire narrowly missed her as she ran for her life when Paddock sprayed bullets into the audience of a country music concert on the party city’s world famous Strip.

Local news outlet KLAS reported a local taxi driver drove the woman from the scene after she escaped from the deadly mass shooting. 

The image showed the bottom of her phone completely shattered, with the metal edge peeling off. The glass outer layer was also splintered. 

Paddock fired hundreds of rounds at concert-goers, killing at least 58 people and injuring more than 520 in the worst mass shooting in modern American history. 

Around 22,000 people were enjoying the closing act of the Route 91 Harvest Country Festival on Sunday night when the 64-year-old retired account opened fire from his room on the 32d floor of the nearby Mandalay Bay Hotel. 

The large arsenal of weapons and ammo used in the massacre were legally obtained by Paddock.

Clarke County Sheriff Joseph Lombardo said Paddock’s shooting spree lasted for 10 minutes before he turned a gun on himself.

His body was found surrounded by guns, ammunition and explosives 75 minutes after the opening salvo was fired.

Motives for the attack remain unclear but Sheriff Lombardo has suggested Paddock spent weeks planning the attack and probably had help.

The Sheriff said he has evidence that Paddock did not plan to die in the attack and had hoped to escape unharmed.

Sheriff Lombardo said at a news briefing on Wednesday night: “What we know is that Stephen Paddock is a man who spent decades acquiring weapons and ammo and living a secret life, much of which will never be fully understood.

“You have to make an assumption that he had some help at some point.”
