Many of us have been glued to our televisions following the aftermath of the deadliest mass shooting in modern American history in Las Vegas. The horrific images have prompted the question "What would you do?" if placed in a similar situation. That question became real for former WLNS reporter Emerald Morrow, who was in Vegas that weekend attending a wedding. After the reception, she began to make her way back to her hotel. However, she quickly realized that something was wrong. 


Morrow stayed in the area reporting from the scene for WTSP (Tampa Bay, Florida) and spoke with our own Al Martin detailing her experience.
