>> It was the help of strangers that got Braden Matejka to the hospital after the 25-year-old was shot in the back of the head.>> It went in and went along my skull and came out about three inches later.>> He and his girlfriend, Amanda, were among the thousands attending a concert in Las Vegas when bullets started raining down.
00:00:19
Like many, the pair thought they were firecrackers. When the shots didn't stop, they started running. That's when Braden was hit.>> I was like, I think I've been shot in the head. And she looked and there was blood all down the back of my head, down the back of my neck, down my pants.
00:00:34
We ran to another cover where four other people helped me. They took their shirt off, wrapped it around my head, and helped me get to the road. And then, she asked the police to help. And they stopped a random passerby and she let me go in the back of her car and she dropped me to the hospital.
00:00:55
>> When we got to the hospital, we got separated and I had his phone in my bag, which was dead. So having to wait for three or four hours, I didn't even know if he was gonna be okay.>> The Canadian couple managed to survive the deadliest mass shooting in modern US history, where more than 50 were killed and 500 more were injured.
00:01:15
And despite his close encounter with death, Braden says he won't let this experience slow him down.>> It's not gonna stop me from going and seeing the rest of the world. I think I'll probably live even faster now.
