SPRINGFIELD, Ore. -- A year later, survivors of the Las Vegas shooting will tell you that it feels like it happened yesterday.
KEZI 9 News first sat down with Kyla and Wayne Lowell in their Springfield home in March. Emotional triggers still affect them one year later.
"Kane Brown was on that day, Jason Aldean," Wayne said. "There's compassion that needs to happen. People don't get over things (like this) in an hour, 6 months, years."
In May, KEZI 9 News then followed them on their return to Las Vegas, their first trip back since the shooting. There, they met the Nevada teenager who Wayne helped carry out of the concert venue. Nick Campbell had been shot in the chest.
"I'm glad you made it," Wayne told Nick.
"I appreciate everything," Nick responded, to which Wayne replied, "I didn't do anything special."
"It's not just something that goes away in 10 minutes," Kyla said. "Just because people aren't talking about it anymore doesn't mean that it's not real."
They're talking about the weight of survival, which one year later, they said they still experience every day.
