Las Vegas shooting survivors killed in vehicle crash

Two weeks later the couple were driving to their gated home in Riverside County, California when their vehicle struck a metal gate and burst in to flames.

The couple spent the last two weeks of their life more in love than ever, Brooke told the Las Vegas Review-Journal.

The couple fell more in love, Carver's daughter told reporters, in the weeks after witnessing the massacre that took 58 lives. "Their love was selfless".

According to the Las Vegas Review-Journal, the couple was line dancing and singing along to country performer Jason Aldean when Paddock began spraying bullets into the crowd from the 32nd floor of the nearby Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino.

Dennis Carver leaped on top of his wife, Lorraine Carver, to shield her from the flying bullets on October 1, according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal.

Brooke said her parents had a narrow escape in the shooting, which injured more than 500 people, with Paddock's bullets hitting man next to them.

The couple managed to run away uninjured. They were very happy, "she said".

The couple's youngest daughter, Madison, 16, was at home when their vehicle crashed into nearby metal gate on 16 October.

According to the Las Vegas Review-Journal, the Carvers had a close relationship with Las Vegas.

Lorraine shared a photo of the flowers on her Facebook page on October 5, writing, "I have the most unbelievable husband".

"He just wanted to give my mom a reason to smile after the shooting", Brooke Carver said. "But I also think we've been given little pieces of them that we would've never gotten if the shooting hadn't happened right before they died".

Following the crash, Brooke wrote her own heartfelt Facebook post: "On Monday night, me and my sister's lives changed forever". Almost a month later, not a single petal has fallen from the flowers. Some survivors recount triggering noises and encounters that remind them of the attack, like the sound of a jackhammer, NPR reported one survivor cited. "This is how we know they're looking down and watching over us".
