These women were bartending at the music festival when the Las Vegas gunman opened fire


The stories of survivors keep emerging from the aftermath of the Las Vegas, Nevada, shooting that has claimed at least 59 lives so far. One more story was shared at the vigil held at the Las Vegas City Hall the day after the massacre.

“People were running and screaming, get down get down, he’s shooting, he’s shooting," said Jacqueline Myers. "And everyone was running toward one exit that was open."

Myers, 29, said she was working as a bartender with her co-worker, Rahel Mehari, on the last day of the Route 91 Harvest Festival.

"Eventually there was so many people pushing that the fence actually fell over and people just started running out of the fence to exist the festival grounds," Mehari told Circa.

Mehari, 23, said she hasn't heard from some of her co-workers.

"We haven’t heard from some of the girls we work with," said Mehari. "We don’t know where they are. They’re not texting us, calling us."

Roar Staffing and Production, the company they work for, did not respond to a request for comment. Myers and Mehari say they don't know what to make of the shooting.

"It’s just made me feel like I never want to go anywhere," said Myers. "It’s scary; you go out to have fun."

"I don’t really know what we can do to improve," says Mehari. "Because honestly, we don’t know what’s gonna happen tomorrow or tonight, or when we leave. It’s just everything is so unknown. And it’s just really scary."
