Matthew Cobos was one of thousands of people in attendance at the Route 91 Festival in Las Vegas the night Stephen Paddock opened fire from the 32nd floor of Mandalay Bay resort and casino.
Paddock fired hundreds of rounds over the span of 10(ish) minutes. He was able to fire so rapidly due to altering his semi-auotmatic rifles and making them fully automatic.
Cobos is the man in the now well-known picture covering up a woman from further being hurt (see below).
It has now been revealed that Cobos is a U.S. Army soldier.
THE MYSTERY MAN AT THE CENTER OF ONE OF THE MOST HAUNTING IMAGES FROM THEMASSACRE HAS BEEN REVEALED AS A YOUNG US ARMY SOLDIER WHO BRAVELY RAN INTO THE DANGER ZONE TO HELP OTHERS.
MATTHEW COBOS WAS PHOTOGRAPHED ON SUNDAY NIGHT LYING ON TOP OF A YOUNG WOMAN IN AN ATTEMPT TO SHIELD HER FROM THE BARRAGE OF BULLETS TEARING THROUGH THE AIR AROUND THEM.
Go figure, right? A hero acting like an actual hero!
WHEN THE PHOTO FIRST EMERGED, IT WASN’T CLEAR IF THE WOMAN WAS DEAD OR SERIOUSLY INJURED. BUT THE MAN WHO TOOK IT, GETTY PHOTOGRAPHER DAVID BECKER, REVEALED ON TUESDAY THAT THE COUPLE HAD MANAGED TO RUN AWAY SECONDS AFTER THE PHOTO WAS SNAPPED.
HOWEVER, DAILYMAIL.COM HAS SINCE LEARNED THAT ONCE COBOS GOT THE WOMAN TO SAFETY, HE THEN RAN BACK INTO THE DANGER ZONE TO HELP OTHERS WHO HAD BEEN INJURED.
Doesn’t get more incredible than that. Good on you, Matthew!
