Transcript for Concertgoers breach airport fence fleeing Las Vegas shooting
Let's go to ABC's David Kerley. People were escaping to the airport breaching the fence. Who could blame them. They were running for their lives. The chaos and that instinct to flee. Mandalay bay the hotel is on the southern part of the strip. Just to the east is a large parking lot. That's the venue that was used for the concert. It was fenced in. People had to get over that fence. If you go further east you're at the fence line to the airport. That fence was breached by a lot of people fleeing the scene trying to get away from the venue. They ended up on the airfield at the airport. The airport ordered a ground stop partly because the shooting was happening right next to them and partly because security was breached and they had people on the airfield walking around. That lasted about an hour and a half. Nearly two dozen flights diverted to other airports that's why you heard the quiet Matt reported. En the airport was resecured and also started operations once again. Robin, just like the witness you spoke to, she took shelter in an airport hangar. They were going anywhere they could go. You could totally understand. David, thank you. We have new information.
