Las Vegas Shooting Massacre Survivor Also Survived 9/11 Attacks
Man injured in Twin Towers attack narrowly avoids being killed by shooters in LV
A man who was injured in the Twin Towers attacks on September 11th, 2001 was also caught up in the recent Las Vegas shooting massacre.
Mike Dempsey was inside the World Trade Center during 9/11 and managed to get out alive thinking he would never be involved another false flag event again.
After surviving 9/11, he said he "never dreamed it could happen again", but on Sunday night he narrowly avoided death a second time after he dodged bullets from armed gunmen in Las Vegas and managed to get out alive once more.
Mr. Dempsey has since appeared on national news to say he thinks the government should change gun laws to stop a similar incident happening again in the future.
“I think there’s a reason or a higher purpose why I’m here,” said Dempsey.

KTVU reports: Dempsey was in the World Trade Center on Sept. 11, 2001. He escaped after the first plane hit but was taken to the hospital with a fractured skull after being trampled.
The image of people running for their lives came rushing back Sunday at the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas, where he was staying with friends.
“The casino indoors was mass hysteria,” said Dempsey.
“I hadn’t seen panic like that in 16 years since I lived through 9/11.”
Dempsey, visiting from Raleigh, was outside by the pool when he heard what sounded like fireworks.
Then, he said, “all hell broke loose.”
Gunshots sprayed the crowd from all angles.
“I was right under where he was firing so that was probably the scariest part,” he said.
“Never in my wildest dreams could I have imagined this incident could have happened. But unfortunately, it could happen anywhere, anytime.”
He says he ran through the casino, saw someone shot, and was put on lockdown for several hours inside a restaurant.
He views what happened in Las Vegas as a terror attack and says he supports tighter gun laws.
“It’s a devastating incident and a reflection we need to have change,” he said.
“Help the victims and the survivors and make some good come out of this horrific event.”
