ORLANDO, Fla. (KRON) — Angel Colon thanked the hospital before recalling the horrific moments the gunman shot and killed 49 people in the Orlando nightclub.
“He’s shooting everyone that’s already dead on the floor, making sure they are dead,” said survivor Angel Colon.
Colon described the horrific night he survived during a news conference on Tuesday at the hospital. Appearing in a wheelchair with the doctors and nurses who treated him nearby, Colon talked about what happened early Sunday at the Pulse nightclub.
“I can hear the gunshots getting closer and I look over and he shoots the girl next to me,” Colon recalls.
“I’m next, I’m dead” he thought as the gunman fired toward his head.
He says the gunman shot his hand and his hip. He says he pretended to be dead and the gunman kept firing his gun.
Colon says at times the gunman was shooting people who appeared that they had already been killed.
He thanked the hospital staff and said “I will love you guys forever.”
