Orlando Survivor Recounts the Heartbreaking Loss of His Partner in Massacre
Last night, a survivor of the Orlando terror attack shared his heartbreaking story with Greta Van Susteren.
Brett Rigas, who was grazed on the arm by a bullet in the horrific mass shooting, lost his partner, Frank Hernandez.
Rigas said he was standing at the bar with Frank and a couple other friends when the shots started.
He said after realizing they weren't party of the music, he hit the floor and crawled behind the bar as bullets whizzed by.
In the chaos, he lost track of Frank.
"All you could hear was sprays of bullets over and over again," Rigas said. "Even when I tried to go to sleep last night, all I could hear was gunshots."
Rigas told Greta that police eventually entered the bar and told any survivors to put their hands up and exit.
Once he was out of the bar, he searched different staging areas for Frank, but couldn't find him anywhere.
He went to the police station and the hospital, but still found no sign of Frank.
Rigas said he and Frank's family later went to the crisis center and were told that there was no record of Frank at any of the hospitals, making it likely that he was one of the casualties who didn't survive the massacre.
Shortly after, they officially received the tragic news that Frank didn't make it.
"It's a lot to take in. You never think that something like this will happen to you," Rigas said. "I wouldn't wish this on anybody."
