Heartbreaking and terrifying text messages were sent by a son to his mother during the Orlando shooting at a gay club in Florida, US. The massacre has been called â€œthe worst mass shooting in US historyâ€.
Mina Justice was on the phone with her son Eddie when a lone gunman opened fire in the club Pulse, killing 50 people and leaving 53 injured.
Eddie called his mother when he was hiding in a bathroom. His mother asked him to get off the phone and text instead. The terrifying moments of the massacre were captured in his series of messages.
â€œMommy I love youâ€ said one of his texts. He begged his mother to get help and told her where he was.
â€œTrapp (sic) in bathroomâ€ he wrote.
The harrowing messages included:
â€œIâ€™m gonna dieâ€
â€œHe has usâ€
It is still uncertain if Eddie Justice survived the shooting.
The gunman has been identified as Omar Mateen, 29 and he was killed by the police.
