“Vegas Strong Baby” Wyatt Matheson turns 1 on Wednesday. He was born two days after his parents and uncle survived the shooting at the Route 91 Harvest festival.
The Mandalay Bay digital sign went dark for about four minutes around 10 p.m. on October 1, 2018 and came back to display “#VegasStronger” for at least 30 minutes. Some Las Vegas shooting survivors expected more, however.
Oct. 1 shooting survivors Todd Wienke and his fiancee, Oshia Collins-Waters, chose to return to Las Vegas to marry on the anniversary of the tragedy.
One year after the Oct. 1 shooting at the Las Vegas Village festival grounds, entrance and exit gates are closed to the public.
Survivors of the Oct. 1 mass shooting on the Strip made time to mark the anniversary on Monday in a personal way, including visiting the iconic “Welcome to Las Vegas sign” where 58 crosses bearing the names of the dead reappeared.
