PHILADELPHIA (WTXF) - Tuesday is expected to be another emotional day at the Philadelphia International Airport as people from the Delaware Valley return home from Las Vegas, where tragedy unfolded at a country music festival.
One flight from Las Vegas was expected to land at the Philadelphia International Airport around 7 a.m. Tuesday.
FOX 29 cameras were in baggage claim Monday evening as the first flights arrived home and anxious family members were safely reunited.
59 people were killed and more than 500 others were injured when a 64-year-old man opened fire on a crowd of 22,000 people from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Hotel on the Las Vegas Strip. The shooting is now the deadliest mass shooting in United States history.
A couple from Horsham, Pennsylvania was at the country music festival Sunday night and spoke to FOX 29 from their Las Vegas hotel room Monday afternoon. Katie and Bob Fuhrmeister returned home Tuesday morning.
The couple says the shooting is something they are going to have to live with the rest of their lives. But right now, they say they just want to get home and see their kids.
