49-year-old, Brenda Marquez McCool, was enjoying a night out with her 21-year-old son, Isaiah, at Pulse nightclub in Orlando, FL on the night of the worst mass shooting in American history, which left 49 people dead and 53 wounded.
While on the dance floor, shots began ringing out. According to her sister-in-law Ada Pressley, Brenda instantly spotted the gunman and her instincts kicked in.
Ada said, “Brenda saw him point the gun. She said, ‘Get down,’ to Isaiah and she got in front of him.”
