Transcript for Fort Lauderdale Airport Shooting Victims Were in Florida for Vacation
We are learning more about the victims. The names and faces of some of those killed tonight. Caught in the frightening moments when the gunshots first sounded and the airport erupted in total chaos. Here is Eva pilgrim. Reporter: Most of the victims came to south Florida to celebrate on vacation. Including 84-year-old Olga woltering from Marietta, Georgia, the great grandmother with her husband of 64 years, Ralph. The couple celebrating his 90th birthday with a cruise. He survived. They were such a wonderful pair. They meant the world to all of us. Reporter: Michael oehme, 57, from council bluffs, Iowa, killed just feet from his wife, Kari. She was looking through him no more than two feet away. I kept on trying to console her, just talking with her to kinda keep from further going in shock as she was bleeding pretty good. Reporter: Also among the dead, Terry Andres from Virginia Beach, celebrating his 62nd birthday with a cruise. And 70-year-old Shirley Timmons from senecaville, Ohio. Tonight, the sheriff still looking for answers about the shooting. We'll talk about anything we can do differently to make the airport safer for our citizens and I'm sure we will probably make a change or two. Reporter: Tonight, five people are still in the hospital. Four gunshot victims, two are in critical condition. Tom? Eva, thank you.
