5 lawsuits representing at least 450 victims in Las Vegas mass shooting filed in LA – KABC

Five lawsuits, with one representing up to 450 victims in the Las Vegas mass shooting, were filed in Los Angeles Monday.

The lawyers said the five lawsuits consist of at least two death cases, one catastrophic injury case and one mass tort lawsuit that involves 450 victims who were shot, trampled or suffer from PTSD. The suits were filed against MGM Grand Resorts, which owns the Mandalay Bay hotel, Live Nation and CSC security.

On Oct. 1, a gunman named Stephen Paddock opened fire from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay hotel on thousands of people attending the Route 91 Harvest Festival in Las Vegas. He killed 58 people, many of whom were from Southern California, and injured nearly 500 before turning the gun on himself.

The lawsuits claim that MGM and Live Nation ignored safety protocols, which put thousands of concertgoers at risk.

Heroes of Las Vegas: the hospital staff called to action after the mass shooting

Sunrise Hospital’s emergency room was already full at about 10pm on 1 October when a police officer dropping off an accident victim received a call on his radio announcing: “Shots fired.”

Doctor Kevin Menes and nurse Rhonda Davis looked up from their charts. “Is this for real?” Menes asked. A series of gunshots crackled through the officer’s radio in automatic bursts. It sounded like a combat zone. As he ran out, the officer said, “That’s the Route 91 concert.”

Immediately, Menes realized there would be hundreds if not thousands of victims, and Sunrise – Las Vegas’s largest trauma center and the hospital nearest to the site of the country music festival – would probably receive the most.

He and Davis started to prepare. Menes contacted house supervisor Kat Comanescu, who then summoned all available nurses to the ER to help move or discharge patients.
