LAS VEGAS (ABC4 Utah)- A woman who survived after a gunman unleashed on a crowd of concert goers for nearly 10 minutes is now speaking up.

“I couldn’t be more proud of how our city has come together through everything to help one another,” Chelsea Abate said. She says there was officer that night that saved her life.

“I don’t know how I’ll ever find him…but if you see me and you recognzize me…thank you very, very much,” she said.

Recounting the aftermath of the horrific attack Sunday night that left 58 dead and over 500 injured, Abate says Las Vegas’ wounds will heal.

“One day we will be strong enough to overcome it. It’s just going to take time. Our city is strong and I think we’ll get through it,” she said.

Abate is one of many people paying their respects to those who lost their lives.  A memorial has been set up on Las Vegas Boulevard, not far from where the attack took place. Visitors are bringing flowers and leaving signs with messages of hope.
