According to a report, a couple who survived the Las Vegas massacre during a music festival were killed in a car accident two weeks later.
Dennis and Lorraine Carver of California died after their car crashed into a steel gate outside of their residential community in Riverside County. Their vehicle burst into flames after impact on Oct. 16, the Las Vegas Review-Journal reported.
Prior to the tragic car crash, Dennis shielded his wife by jumping on top of her when bullets rained at the Las Vegas music festival.
“That’s just the kind of love they had for each other,” Brooke Carver, their oldest daughter, told the paper. “Their love was selfless.”
The couple made it out unharmed, holding hands.
After the horrifying incident, both returned to their home with a new outlook on life.
“After the shooting, they heard from all of the people they cared about most. They were so happy,” according to their daughter. “The last two weeks of their lives were really just spent living in the moment.”
Sadly, their lives ended like a scene from Final Destination.
On the night of Oct. 16, Madison, 16, who is one of the couple’s younger daughters heard a loud noise outside her window. As she went to find out what happened, she came upon a familiar vehicle covered in flames.
Dennis, 52, and Lorraine, 53, were killed less than half a mile from their home.
A week after the accident, the surviving daughters of Dennis and Lorraine received a package containing a cellphone that belonged to their father, which was lost during the shooting in Las Vegas.
“When we turned it on, all his photos and messages were still there,” Brooke said. “This is how we know they’re looking down and watching over us.”
“We’ve found some peace in knowing that our parents just loved each other so much that they had to go at the same time. They couldn’t live without each other,” added their younger daughter Madison.
