It was simply one more day at labor for 24-year-old Imran Yousuf who filled in as a bouncer at Pulse club in Orlando Florida. However, it shouldn’t be. The night turned disastrous after shooter Omar Mateen went out of control in the gay dance club slaughtering 49 individuals before he was at long last gunned around police officials.
The number of casualities could have been considerably higher, yet the sharpness of one man spared the lives of many partygoers in the club. At the point when Mateen discharged his underlying shots Yousuf, an ex-american marine immediately remembered it was from a high bore weapon.
Yousuf, a hindu man along with his brother Ameer had served in the Marines for 06 years and had fought the war in Afghanistan. “The initial one was three or four (shots). That was a shock. Three of four shots go off and you could tell it was a high caliber,” Yousuf told CBS news. He further added that, “Everyone froze. I’m here in the back and I saw people start pouring into the back hallway, and they just sardine pack everyone. There was only one choice. Either we all stay there and we all die, or I could take the chance, and I jumped over to open that latch a we got everyone that we can out of there,”
According to the reports, Around 60-70 people managed to get out to safety after the door was opened. The Afghan war-veteran ended up saving dozens of lives after he opened the doors of a room which the partygoers had locked themselves inside after Mateen began shooting.
Regardless of him being known as a HERO for his activities, Yousuf says he is no legend and is tormented that he couldn’t spare more individuals. ( This is very touching :’) ). “I wish I could have saved more to be honest. There are a lot of people that are dead …there are a lot of people that are dead,” He said in tears…
Bless you mate :)
