Qld woman's tale of terror amid Las Vegas massacre

COURTNEY Cooper first thought the gunshots were fireworks going off above her.

She had been separated from her friend and standing near the main stage when the crowd at the Route 91 Harvest Festival began to panic.

She thought the people around her were just tripping over. Then only a metre away, a bullet exploded through a man's knee and chaos set in.

"There were bullets just going everywhere and there was a guy like a metre away from me who got his knee blown out.
