911 Calls Paint Chilling New Picture of Orlando Nightclub Shooting


Newly released 911 calls give a haunting look at the brutal terror attack on an Orlando, Florida, nightclub earlier this year. 

"When he called us he was in the bathroom and he said there's a lot of dead people," a woman told an Orange County dispatcher on the night of the June 12 attack. Her brother was still trapped inside the Pulse nightclub.

"I understand. We're pulling victims out. We're searching for everybody. Have patience," the dispatcher responded. 

Meanwhile, Omar Mateen, a radical Muslim, was waging jihad by shooting and murdering as many people in the nightclub as he could.

Calls from family members and victims flooded local dispatchers in hopes of stopping the bloody terror attack. The Orange County Sheriff's Office recently released the 911 calls, giving a chilling picture of what took place.

"He got shot and nobody is going in for him," one man told a dispatcher after finding out his son had been shot. "He's in the bathroom and nobody's going in for him."

Other calls echoed the same feelings of frustration. 

"When are you going to help them? People are dead and two people are dying," another man asked in the call.

Matteen was eventually killed by police SWAT teams, but not before murdering dozens of people.
