Mother dies protecting her son during the Orlando nightclub shooting.
Single mum Brenda Lee Marquez McCool died on Sunday along with 49 others in a nightclub massacre last weekend.
It has been reported that Brenda loved to dance so much so that she’d go to nightclubs with her 21-year-old gay son. They were both at Pulse Sunday morning when shots rang out.
Brenda’s sister-in-law told how the mum of 11 told her son to ‘get down’ and shielded him when Omar Mateen, 29, began shooting.
NBC News reported she went to Pulse nightclub with her son Isaiah Henderson, 21, who survived the attack.
She uploaded a video of dancing at the club just hours before the attack.
Her eldest daughter Khalisha Pressley told NBC News Isaiah called her straight after the shooting, screaming.
“He had to watch his mother die,” Ms Pressley said. “He saw everybody getting killed. He feels it was his fault.”
Authorities are now considering criminal charges against the wife of Omar Mateen after she admitted having tried to talk him out of launching his deadly attack on a gay nightclub.
Noor Mateen told the FBI that she once drove her husband to the Pulse nightclub in Orlando before he went on the rampage that killed 49 patrons.
