A video recently went viral showing the Las Vegas hotel suite from which Stephen Paddock unleashed a hellhole on concertgoers that killed 59 people and injured another 527 early Monday in the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history.
More than a year before Stephen Paddock is believed to have fired into a crowd and killed dozens of people from a Mandalay Bay hotel room, a North Carolina man says he took video of that exact room.
Tourist Jeff Bridges captured the footage of the room when he stayed in the hotel with his wife last year. (Video below)
“Do you want to see what the view was from Mandalay Bay?” he captioned the video on Facebook. “Andrea and I stayed in that EXACT same room last year on the 32nd floor! Room 32-135! The video ironically ends with a view down to the concert area. Again, we would like to send our thoughts and prayers to everyone impacted by this tragedy! #LasVegas #PrayingForVegas”
The video shows one of the hotel’s Vista suites, located at the end of one of the building’s three arms, which provides a perfect view over where the Route 91 Harvest Festival would later be staged.
One whole wall of the suit is made from glazed glass panels, two of which would be smashed by Paddock in order to create sniper points for his attack.
The large room comes with two large seating areas and a bar area with two wall-mounted televisions.
Giving a tour of the room, Bridges says: ‘The best thing about this room isn’t that it’s 1,800 square feet, the best thing is the views.’
He then pans the camera around to show the neighboring Delano hotel, the Luxor opposite, and then The Strip running alongside. On the other side of the road is the venue where 58 people were shot dead and more than 500 wounded during the attack before paddock turned a gun on him.
After the massacre, the brutal killer was found dead alongside his weapons and thousands of rounds of ammunition used during the outrage.
President Trump is expected to head to Las Vegas on Wednesday to meet with victims and first responders.
