More Heartbreaking Stories From The Colorado Tragedy [VIDEO]

ABC News

 

The tragedy itself is bad enough.  As the days unfold, we hear about what actually happening in the theater at the premiere of Batman.  Many lost their lives while being heroes and protecting the ones they loved. 

 

Of the 12 people killed in the Aurora theater shooting, four of them were men who made the ultimate sacrifice to protect their girlfriends. Now, each of these women are struggling to come to terms with both their grief and their gratitude.

 Alexander Teves, 24, attended the midnight screening of “The Dark Knight Rises” with his girlfriend Amanda Lindgren , 24.

When suspected gunman James Holmes opened fire in the sold out theater, Teves immediately lunged to block Lindgren from the gunfire.

“I was really, really confused at first about what was going on, so confused,” Lindgren told ABC News. “But, it’s like Alex didn’t even hesitate. Because I sat there for a minute, not knowing what was going on, and he held me down and he covered my head and he said, ‘Shh stay down. It’s ok. Shh just stay down.’ So I did.”

Teves blocked the bullets from Lindgren but he was shot and killed. She was not hit.

“He was my angel that night, but he was my angel every day I knew him,” Lindgren said. “I’m broken.”
