"I Know Where I'm Going If I Die": Heroic Tales Emerge from California Shooting Tragedy Saved Others

Will Maule : Nov 9, 2018 : Faithwire

One survivor distinctly remembers a group of men throwing themselves on top of the girls to protect them from the hail of gunfire. They were "ready to take a bullet for every single one of us," she said.

(Thousand Oaks, CA) — [Faithwire.com] Witnesses to a brutal mass shooting that took place in a California bar Wednesday night have spoken about their experiences, as stories of heroism continue to emerge from the horror. One such hero was 20-year-old Matt Wennerstrom, who said he'd been in the Borderline bar in Thousand Oaks for around 30 minutes when the first shots rang out. (Screengrab via Faithwire/ ABC News)

"I grabbed as many people as I possibly could around me, everyone, and got them below the pool table … until we heard the shots stop," Wennerstrom told CBS News. "At that point, I knew [the gunman] was reloading and there was not much he was going to be able to do."

As the atmosphere became increasingly panicked, Wennerstrom spotted a few other brave souls tossing barstools out the window to create a quick escape route for the stricken crowd. He decided to "follow suit" and do everything he could to help out those around him.

"We just pushed people towards the bar so they weren't in the direct line of sight of him and then just filed as many people ― everyone that was there in that area ― out through that back window," he said.
