ĐC: Trong số 59 nạn nhân của vụ thảm sát "kinh tởm" tại buổi đại nhạc hội ngoài trời ở Las Vegas tối Chủ nhật 1 tháng 10 có một người gốc Việt Nam, cô Michelle Vo. Cô Michelle Vo năm nay 32 tuổi, là một người yêu thích country music. Cô vừa từ San Jose dọn về Los Angeles trong một thời gian ngắn, đang làm việc cho hãng bảo hiểm New York Life Insurance Company.

 

Tại buổi đại nhạc hội có anh thanh niên Kody Robertson để ý đến cô Michelle Vo và cùng bắt chuyện. Khi cô Michelle bị trúng đạn ngã xuống đang bị thương, anh Kody đã lao vào dùng thân mình che chắn cho Michelle. Ngay sau đó anh Kody cùng bạn đã khiêng Michelle vừa chạy vừa né, đưa Michelle lên một chiếc xe đem vào bệnh viện, nhưng vết thương quá nặng khiến Michelle không qua khỏi.

 

Gia đình Michelle Vo từ San Jose xuống Las Vegas hôm thứ Ba sau khi gặp gỡ với nhân viên công lực. Mẹ của Michelle, bà Hana Bùi nói Michelle là cô con gái tốt, luôn tươi cười. Người chị em gái là Cathy Vo chia sẻ cảm nghĩ trong xúc động, "We are hoping she didn't feel that fear or the terror. It was a quick death, peaceful death. No anger just a lot of sadness. It was a senseless act that I could ask why for the rest of my life why. I would never get that answer”, như trong bản tin San Jose high school graduate among the dead following Vegas mass shooting của KTVU đưa dưới đây.

 

Vụ xả súng thảm sát lớn nhất nước Mỹ này lại một lần nữa dấy lên ngay tranh cãi về súng không dứt ở Mỹ. Second Amendment của Hiến pháp Mỹ thì nằm ở đó, nhưng câu hỏi có thể đặt ra là một người, không có tiền án hay vấn đề tâm thần, được phép sưu tập giới hạn bao nhiêu cây súng? Và, nếu một kẻ nào đó có âm mưu phạm tội, có thể mua nhiều súng ở thị trường chợ đen thì đây là một vấn đề nan giải khác.

The 32-year-old had attended UC Davis and was living in Los Angeles at the time she went to the Route 91 Harvest Festival outside the Mandalay Bay Casino and Hotel Sunday night when gunman Stephen Paddock fired off from his arsenal of firearms into the crowd.

 

She recently moved to Los Angeles  where she worked as an insurance agent at New York Life Insurance Company.

 

Vo’s family returned to San Jose from Las Vegas Tuesday, after meeting with the coroner's office. They said, they're not angry but want to focus on the good that's come out of all this evil.

 

Michelle Vo’s older sister, Cathy, said her younger sister was fearless and loved to travel. Her mother, Hana Bui, described Michelle Vo as a good girl who was always smiling.  Cathy Vo said Michelle recently fell in love with country music and that’s why she was at the three day music festival in Las Vegas.

 

“She was happy,” said Cathy Vo. “She was enjoying it telling us how much fun she was having.”

According to the Columbus Dispatch, Kody Robertson had caught eyes with Vo at the concert and was hanging out with her when the gunfire range out. Vo fell. He told the Dispatch that he fell on her as she lay injured.

 

“We’d run and duck and run and duck and run and duck,” Robertson said. “Your instinct is to run, to get away from that, but there were so many people, too many people down all over who needed help.”

 

Robertson and others carried Vo from the chaos, performing CPR to try to save a the California woman with a peppy smile and a penchant for the Warriors.

 

“You can’t even process it,” he told the Dispatch. “Husbands and wives on top of one another just screaming, people crying and trying too hard to get someone to wake up.”

 

A man in a pickup stopped and Robertson and the others put Vo in the truck bed with others. The driver sped away toward a hospital.

 

That was the last Robertson saw of her.

 

“We are hoping she didn't feel that fear or the terror,” said Cathy Vo. “It was a quick death, peaceful death. No anger just a lot of sadness. It was a senseless act that I could ask why for the rest of my life why. I would never get that answer.”


Michelle Vo’s family is overwhelmed with unimaginable grief yet grateful for Michelle’s friends and strangers like Kody Robertson who they call an angel. They are focusing on the good as Michelle Vo would have wanted.

 

“There’s so much love out there,” said Cathy Vo. “Michelle had so much love and there's so much love coming into the family right now.”
