NBC News reports:
“As I was walking down, I heard rapid fire. And at first I took cover, I felt a burning sensation. I went to go lift my pant leg up and I saw the blood,” Campos said on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” in an episode airing Wednesday.
He said he radioed in that shots were fired, but didn’t immediately say he was hit. Instead, he pulled out his cellphone, he said, “just to clear that radio traffic” because he knew something serious was happening.
“Within milliseconds if he didn’t say that, I would have got hit,”hotel maintenance worker Stephen Schuck revealed to DeGeneres.
Ellen DeGeneres went on to thank Campos for alerting hotel security about Stephen Paddock, even after he was hit.
Campos said he is still emotionally and physically reeling from the attack.
“I’m doing better each day,” Campos said.
“Slowly, but surely.”
