When Omar Mateen opened fire with his AR-15  rifle on a gay nightclub in Orlando, there was one man inside who recognized the sound, a war veteran named Imran Yousuf, a bouncer at the Pulse nightclub.

Yousuf, a 24-year-old Hindu, served as a U.S. Marine in Afghanistan. On Saturday night, the combat zone followed him to Orlando.

“The initial one was three or four (shots). That was a shock. Three of four shots go off and you could tell it was a high caliber,” he said in an interview with CBS. “Everyone froze. I’m here in the back and I saw people start pouring into the back hallway, and they just sardine pack everyone.”

Yousuf knew that just beyond that pack of panicked people was a door that would lead to safety. But someone had to unlatch it.

And that someone was Yousuf.

“And I’m screaming ‘Open the door! Open the door!’ And no one is moving because they are scared,” he explained. “There was only one choice. Either we all stay there and we all die, or I could take the chance, and I jumped over to open that latch a we got everyone that we can out of there.”

That’s what heroes do!

How many people went through the door?

“Probably over 60, 70. As soon as people found that door was open they kept pouring out and after that we just ran,” he explained.

He saved a lot of people on that tragic night.

“I wish I could have saved more to be honest,” he said through tears. “There are a lot of people that are dead …there are a lot of people that are dead.”
