Las Vegas Shooting Survivor Becomes A Cop

A 23-year-old Oregon woman who survived the mass shooting at an outdoor country music festival in Las Vegas last October was inspired to become a police officer by those who came to her rescue and saved her life, and she was sworn in last week. Lauren Card told The Register-Guard that what she remembers most clearly about the shooting in which 58 people were killed and hundreds injured is when help arrived, saying, "In that moment, I kind of had a sense that, 'OK, the police are here. They are going to fix it. They are going to make it better. Everything is going to be OK.'" She continued, "I want to be that person for someone else in that situation. When they’re going through something crappy or going through a hard time, I want them to see me and be like, 'OK, she’s going to fix it. She’s going to make it better.'" Card has joined the Springfield Police Department in Oregon.
